The Estes Valley is the ancestral home to the Arapaho, Ute and other Native American tribes. Historic US and State of Colorado policies displaced Native Americans from the valley and severed the physical connection they had with their homeland. The Estes Valley Land Trust will host a virtual breakfast to learn more about the tribal connections to the valley and discuss partnership opportunities between tribal and land conservation organizations.
The breakfast will include a panel with Mr. Fred Mosqueda, Arapaho Indian, and Coordinator of the Culture Program of the Arapaho and Cheyenne Tribes, and Dr. Patty Limerick, Faculty Director and Chair of the Board of the Center of the American West, University of Colorado.
This Estes Valley Land Trust breakfast will be held on Saturday, June 26 at 9 a.m. and will take place online. Reservations are required and can be made at: evlandtrust.org/rsvp. This event is for EVLT members only. Not a member? Please join at: evlandtrust.org/donate.
There is no charge for the online breakfast and attendees receive two free Cinnamon’s Bakery cinnamon rolls, if registered by June 18. Quantities are limited and details on where to pick up the cinnamon rolls will be emailed to those who register.
“The land trust recently made a commitment to be a more inclusive organization and better serve the whole community” said Jeffrey Boring, Estes Valley Land Trust Executive Director. “Our tribal partners are deeply connected to nature and I’m looking forward to working with them to conserve more land in the valley.”
