Native Americans of Colorado’s Front Range: The Original Inhabitants @ Golden History Center | Golden | Colorado | United States

The Ute, Arapaho and Southern Cheyenne Indians of Colorado lead a nomadic existence, moving from place to place hunting bison, elk and pronghorn and gathering wild plants. How did their relationship with the land shape their domestic life and spiritual beliefs? How did the introduction of metal goods such as knives, cooking pots and firearms change both domestic life and the measure of bravery as they encountered European-Americans?

Enjoy hot tea and cookies from 19th century recipes as you explore the rich ecocentric culture of our nation’s First Americans with historian Priscilla Marshall. Recommended for participants age 12 and up.
