Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs
The Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs (CCIA), serves as the official liaison between the State of Colorado and Colorado’s two land based tribes, the Southern Ute Indian Tribe headquartered in Ignacio, Colorado and Ute Mountain Ute Tribe headquartered in Towaoc, Colorado. The Commission is fully committed to work on a government-to-government basis with each of the two Ute Tribal governments and to maintaining direct contact with the other 46 Historic Tribes of Colorado and off-reservation American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. The Lt. Governor serves as the statutory chair of the Commission whose members represent various interests within the Native American community.
