Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs



Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs (CCIA) was created 1976 by the Colorado General Assembly to be the official liaison between Colorado’s two Ute Tribes and the State. The CCIA works on a government-to-government basis with the two Ute Tribes, and it facilitates communications with urban Indian communities.


One of the CCIA’s many goals is to ensure that Colorado’s schools have effective resources for teaching the history, culture, and present lives of the Ute people. Archaeology is one of many disciplines that contribute to our understanding of Ute history and culture. LiDAR data processing, analysis and visualization.
