Native America Calling

September 21, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Today, September 21– Growing recognition to change offensive place names

Until this month, one of Colorado’s highest peaks was named for the former state governor who fostered and supported what became known as the Sand Creek Massacre in 1864. It took years of pressure and an awareness campaign to get the name changed. Still, support is not universal. We’ll get the story on changing the Mount Evans name to Mount Blue Sky – and some updates on other important place name changes.
