Online Webinar


This event is brought to you by the Bureau of Land Management, Monticello Field Office and Bears Ears National Monument in partnership with Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum.

Highly adapted to the rugged landscape of the inter-mountain West, the Ute people have lived in southeast Utah for at least six centuries. Petroglyphs left in the canyons and mountains of the region speak to deeply rooted Ute beliefs and how the settling of the West affected Ute personal lives, social responsibilities, land use, economy, and relationship with other native groups. With little other cultural material left behind by the Utes, these images are an extraordinary record of their historical experience in southeast Utah and their adaptability in a rapidly changing West.


The webinar is suitable for lifelong learners from high school students to adults.  The lesson is free.
