The Rocky Mountain Land Library acknowledges with respect that both our sites along the South Platte River are situated on the lands of several indigenous communities, including the Ute, Arapaho, Cheyenne, Comanche, Kiowa peoples. Both South Park, and the city of Denver, were also sites of trade and gathering for other Native tribes.
We honor the land’s historic context, and are working to build reciprocal relationships with the Native nations on whose lands we are located. In partial fulfillment of that commitment, the Rocky Mountain Land Library has built a 4,000 volume library devoted to Native American history and living heritage. We are also working to establish a Native American Residency Program at Buffalo Peaks Ranch for Native American artists, writers, and other creatives.
