American Indian/Indigenous Peoples Historic Context

Native American historic context banner

The Office of Storytelling is once again partnering with Community Planning and Development for the second historic context in the Denver in Context series, which seeks to explore the diverse ethnic and cultural history of Denver. Our team will create what we expect to be an hour-long documentary — a companion to the written study that will be created by Denver Landmark Preservation in collaboration with Native communities — that will honor and share the history of American Indian, Native American and Indigenous Peoples in Denver.

Just like in 2021, when we joined forces with CPD and told the story of Denver's Chicano/Latino communities in our documentary "Qué Viva la Raza: Honoring a Denver Legacy," we're once again looking for stories people and places to recognize and remember that authentically reflect the community. If you have ideas you'd like us to consider, please click the link below to share them. While our tiny team is limited in what we can include in the film, we’re excited to see your recommendations. And please be sure and fill out the Denver in Context survey to ensure the written report includes your story.
