The event, “Beyond Acknowledgments: Understanding CMC’s land heritage and seeding the future,” is set for 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 17, via Zoom and is open to the public. The event will feature Keystone Policy Center senior policy director and Ute Mountain Tribe member Ernest House Jr. In his role at the Keystone Policy Center, House is working with various stakeholders in the areas of tribal consultation, energy, health care and education.
