Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center and Delta County Libraries present "Voices of the Western Slope," a series of entertaining, engaging, and informative presentations on noteworthy topics of the Western Slope.
The first presentation in the quarterly series is "The Ute Indians" with Alma Evans. Evans, PhD, has worked with the Ute Indian Museum in Montrose as a docent. Her background in education has allowed her to continue teaching about the Native Americans of this area, specifically the Ute Indians. Evans has worked closely with Dr. Carol Patterson, whose expertise is Native American sign language, and with the elders from the Ute Mountain Tribe in interpretations of Shavano Petroglyphs. Her presentation will focus on the findings at Eagle Rock that correlate with some petroglyphs in Shavano Valley, a short history on Chief Shavano, and a video of the Shavano petroglyphs.
This event will be held at the Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center in Cedaredge at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15. There is a recommended donation of $10 at the door to cover presentation costs.
