Give tribe a role at the U.

SHARE Give tribe a role at the U.

Stephen Speckman's Aug. 13 article on the subject of banishing the Ute name from use at the University of Utah brought to mind my recent attendance at a grandchild's graduation at Arapahoe High School in Denver.

Indians representing the tribe headed the graduate procession in full dress and sat on the front row. A tribal representative was one of the featured speakers and gave some excellent advice. It was great public relations for the tribe and culture. An Indian presence might make the competition wish they have something to match.

Why not take a page out of the Arapahoe public relations book and "Go Utes"?
