Join us for another installment of our Borderlands of Southern Colorado Lecture Series with Virginia Sanchez.
Sánchez will discuss the legal and illegal trade that became a system of survival on the frontier, with trade expeditions creating economic opportunities for both cultures. Sánchez will introduce some southern Colorado traders and their licenses, a recorded trade route from Colorado, and documented trade locations. She'll discuss the treatment captive indigenous slaves received, as documented by oral histories and historical memories. And, she'll introduce Agent Lafayette Head’s 1865 Indian Census, examining its data from an alternate perspective.
The stories told in the Borderlands of Southern Colorado exhibit are getting richer. Join authors, artists, scholars, and activists from around the country this fall for the Borderlands of Southern Colorado lecture series as they deepen discussions an complicate narratives on various Borderlands topics. All talks are free and open to the public.
This series is sponsored by Colorado State University-Pueblo. Talks at Fort Garland Museum & Cultural Center are further sponsored by the Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area.
