They hunted and camped in the mountains surrounding Aspen. Now, most Northern Ute Indians live on a reservation in Utah but, one man decided to return. There may be only one Ute living in the Roaring Fork Valley now.&nbsp;Skyler Lomahaftewa says he’s the only Ute Tribal member living year-round in the Roaring Fork Valley.

The popular exhibit features new artifacts from around Colorado. The idea is to educate people about the tribe’s history from hunting on the Western Slope to being forced out of the area and onto reservations. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen takes us on a tour.</p><p></p> Mon, 19 May 2014 12:00:00 +0000 Marci Krivonen 18669 at http://aspenpublicradio.org Ute Exhibit In Aspen Reopens With New Artifacts Skiing Through The Past With the Historical Society http://aspenpublicradio.org/post/skiing-through-past-historical-society <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">It’s been called a Swiss cheese mountain—that’s Aspen Mountain, and it’s filled with holes from a history of mining. Some caverns are ten stories high. Telling stories about them--and other tales of years gone by-- is all in a day’s work for History Coach Mike </span>Monroney<span style="line-height: 1.5;">. He hosts ski tours for the Aspen Historical Society. Aspen Public Radio's Elise Thatcher clicked into her skis and joined the Aspen Mountain tour last week.</span></p><p></p> Mon, 13 Jan 2014 03:14:24 +0000 Elise Thatcher 12814 at http://aspenpublicradio.org Skiing Through The Past With the Historical Society
