Conservators help repair Ute treasures

Conservator Terry Schindel, left, gives Eleanor Frost a lesson on cleaning the delicate beading on a historical Southern Ute saddlebag Wednesday. Schindel is cleaning and preserving items in the Southern Ute Cultural Center and Museum’s collection to prepare them for display when it opens in June 2011. She is also training museum staff on basic conservatorship techniques. Frost is working on the tribal-consultant program for the new facility.
Frost wears the beaded moccasins her great-grandmother made decades ago. The geometric design represents the Colorado mountains. Frost, Miss Southern Ute 2008-2009, is learning how to care for historical Ute artifacts like her moccasins as part of her work at the Southern Ute Cultural Center and Museum.
