USUBuilders at Utah State University’s Blanding campus have been working on a traditional Native American Hogan since May.
It’s finally ready.

The structure will be used by students as a place to practice traditional ceremonies and find peace and meditation.

KZMU Radio looked at the structure’s importance for students and the community.

This report was produced for the Rocky Mountain Community Radio Coalition, of which KSUT is a member. RMCR includes more than 15 member stations across Colorado and parts of Wyoming, Utah, and New Mexico.
