The UCUT provides a high-level service to our five member tribes and their enrolled members by participating at annual powwows, encampments and gatherings that our tribes organize.

The UCUT central staff set up a display booth and talk with people interested in the science-based projects and other activities. World-class dancing, drumming, art, food, friendship, and fun are also a wonderful part of these cultural celebrations!
