Colorado Experience takes you through the history of the state’s original inhabitants: “the Utes.” Historians trace their origins from pre-colonial days and early interactions with American trappers and explorers through the escalating friction with new settlers and gold seekers, to their ultimate expulsion to reservations.

The first Ute reservations were established in the 1860’s, and today the question of land rights remains a topic of dispute for the Ute nation. Discover how the Utes’ legacy continues to impact Colorado today.



Southwest Colorado may still be a vast maze of dirt roads and windy passes without the innovative thinking of Otto Mears, the “Pathfinder of the San Juans.”  Mears was one of many Jewish Coloradans who left a mark on the state.

From the philanthropists behind National Jewish Hospital for Consumptives, to Leadville’s thriving mining community, this episode discovers the significant achievements and history-making advancements by Colorado’s Jewish population.  You can enjoy more Colorado history videos at Colorado Experience.
