We have some of the most beautiful skies in the Spanish Peaks Country area, and Jeff Stovall captured them magnificently.

Take a look at some of the evening skies he photographed around the La Veta, Colorado area.

Through generous support from Colorado Humanities and great partners, Huajatolla Heritage Foundation has been able to offer important programs this year. The program this week is no exception. We are so pleased to have Virginia Sanchez come to the La Veta Library on Thursday, August 11h at 1 PM to share information about her book “Forgotten Cucharenos of the Lower Valley”. As we are able to delve more and more into the history of our area, the more crucial it becomes for our increasing awareness of the rich fabric of stories that have contributed to our culture. Not all are pretty, but all are important. Please join us in welcoming Ms. Sanchez and share in her passion and knowledge about historical happenings in Huerfano County. ... See MoreSee Less

The Writing Your Life workshop at Lathrop Park SATURDAY, from 10-4 July 16th has been in the works for months. The facilitators, Mike Erickson and Cat Jensen had invited me to take their Memoir Writing workshop on Zoom last fall. It was once a week for 8 weeks if I remember correctly. It was such fun, and I learned a lot not only about writing, but about self! Mike and Cat are part of History Colorado staff at the Byers–Evans House, a historic house museum in Denver, Colorado. It is the home of History Colorado's Center for Colorado Women's History. Mike is an Education Coordinator for the Center and Cat is Guest Services Specialist (who has a master’s degree in Cultural Sustainability…is not that a delicious concept?). They are so well suited to the work they do and for encouraging us to get our important stories into written format. Some may have a grand vision of the next great historical text and others (like me) may just want to become a better writer and storyteller. They were gifted in guiding a remarkably diverse class into becoming better writers through interesting prompts and sensitive feedback. As is often the case, with something I love, I just think it must be shared and I pitched the idea to Cat and Mike to come offer a writing workshop here in Huerfano County…and much to my delight they agreed.
We have had a couple of gremlins set in however, the newspaper that is always so helpful in promoting events billed it as being on Friday, not Saturday. And then there has been a change in contacts since we put up the posters. I am the one to contact: sdolak@hhfoundation.org or call/text to 719-251-1271. There is a $20 fee, with limited scholarships available. A “working/sharing lunch” will be provided. Over lunch we will use our Pop-up Museum concept to explore, “Why We Write,” a voluntary experience. We will do an audio/visual recording; a bit like an adult version of show and tell. This is part of how I define Cultural Sustainability in encouraging Wisdomkeepers to become the Wisdom Sharerers. Please come join us for this special day. This event is made possible by a Colorado Humanities Grant and the Huajatolla Heritage Foundation, promoting Cultural Equity.

“One of the (many) highlights of my visit to Spanish Peaks Country Colorado was an interview with Dean Fleming. An artist in New York at the time, in 1968 Fleming had the vision to create an artist's commune in Colorado. Libre is one of the last U.S. working communes.”

A BIG Thank You Trippin' the USA by Rail - Jill Dutton Jill Dutton for visiting Spanish Peaks Country and immersing yourself in our history, culture and the beautiful outdoors. See you next time 👋

I am crying tears of gratitude. Yesterday I I interviewed a Native American artist named Arthur Short Bull. Today I found out that he gifted me one of his paintings. I am overflowing with gratitude for his generosity
