Spring lecture series featuring Roland McCook

The Spring Lecture Series kicks off with a visit from Native American Cultural Programs’ current chairperson, Roland McCook. As the next likely descendant of Chief Ouray and Chipeta, McCook has committed his life to his people. He creates numerous educational opportunities for all who call these places “home” today. We can understand our common shared historical past through his oral traditions. The lecture begins at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 28, at the Glenwood Springs Branch Library. This event is free and open to the public. For more information call 970-945-5958.
