I have lived in Ignacio, Colorado my whole life and the one thing I think that makes Ignacio so unique is that it is a very diverse place. I got to grow up on the Southern Ute Indian Tribe Reservation and learn so much about the Native Americans which I wouldn't of learned if I didn't live in Ignacio.

Great town, great school, very safe. Lots of events occur during the year. There's a homecoming parade, bike rally, rodeos etc.
