Ute Bear Dance

An ancient ceremony of the Southern Ute Indians, the Ute Bear Dance is now held on Memorial Day weekend in Ignacio, Colorado. Originally the ritual was held in late February or early March. It stemmed from the belief that the Utes were descended from bears, and the dance served both to help the bears coming out of hibernation and to gain power from them.
