Job Description Petroglyphs and Ancient Dwellings. Discover what Towaoc has to show while giving YOUR aid to the people! The Community -
While being the most southwestern town in Colorado, Towaoc is also the headquarters of the Ute Mountain Ute Indian Reservation. The neighboring Southern Ute tribe and Ute Mountain Utes are the only American Indian tribes remaining in Colorado. While the tribe partakes in a modern lifestyle, they also remain rooted in tradition, keeping alive important ancient customs and belief. Traditionally, the Ute tribe is known for its intricate works of beadwork. Today, they also have a thriving pottery enterprise, and their work is available to visitors at local trading posts and through their own pottery outlet.
