The Story Behind the Exhibit: Written on the Land: Ute Voices, Ute History

How do you fit the story of Colorado’s longest continuous residents into one museum gallery? During a five-year process, History Colorado staff and representatives of the three Ute tribes grappled with difficult and exciting decisions about which photographs, artifacts, media, and words would be used to bring Ute history to life at History Colorado Center. Join Exhibit Developer Liz Cook for a short tour of the exhibit, and of History Colorado’s consultation with the Ute tribes, and how that partnership continues through innovative programs.
