Indigenous Enslavement in Southern Colorado

Unsilenced: Indigenous Enslavement in Southern Colorado is an installation by artist jetsonorama at Fort Garland Museum and Cultural Center. The installation will be on display in one of the original adobe buildings constructed in 1858. It incorporates historic photos of Indigenous captives and images of former Colorado Lieutenant Governor Lafayette Head's 1865 census of enslaved Indigenous people in Conejos and Costilla Counties. A space in the installation will offer visitors the opportunity to process and offer reflections on the work. The artist's interpretation is part of History Colorado's Borderlands of Southern Colorado initiative.
