Indigenous Psychedelic Medicine Use in Colorado, a History @ Golden History Museum
Mar 5 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Indigenous psychedelic medicineIndigenous psychedelic medicine

This lecture dives into the history of Indigenous psychedelic medicine use in Colorado.

When did it become illegal in the United States to use the active ingredients in some of the plants/fungi in the region? How did healers and medicine people who carried the traditional knowledge work with the substances after criminalization?  What active ingredients/compounds are now legal again nationally or at the state level? This lecture covers historical uses from an anthropological discipline.

Dr. Otañez: Chair and Associate Professor in the Anthropology Department, University of Colorado Denver. One of his research areas is psilocybin use among people of color in Colorado and building corporate accountability in the global psychedelic sector. In fall 2023, Dr. Otañez and his co-author Aaraón Díaz (Mexico City) are publishing the first volume in a four-volume book Art-Based Narratives as Resources to End Cannabis Stigmatization in North America.
