Ute Mountain Indian Trading Company

I stopped at this store operated by the Ute Mountain Indian Tribe on my way into Cortez.  I will be touring their nearby reservation in a few weeks when I return to the area to spend more time here.  I’ve been told that their tour is fascinating.

This store is also a pottery factory, so much of what you will see is actually made on site.  In addition to pottery they sell other mementos, jewelry, rugs and artwork.  It is a huge shop and I was delighted when the young lady who greeted me said that I could take pictures (only one small area was off limits).
