Collegiate Peaks Forum Series presents:
Ute Land Religion – Remembering She-towitch and Chipeta with Dr. Brandi Denison
The lecture is free to the public and refreshments will be served.
Dr. Denison explores the intersection of land, race, and religion as well as gender, violence, memory, and theories of religion. She will share her research on She-towitch and Chipeta, Ute women who became the center of white Coloradans’ romantic ideals of Indians, thus contributing to the formation of a Western idealized spirituality based on the beauty of Colorado’s landscape.
Her book is Ute Land Religion in the American West, 1879-2009
