Join us for an engaging exploration and illustration of the history, culture, concerns, and needs of each of the five featured regions.
The film explores how in 1861, the U.S. Congress carved Colorado’s boundaries representing no river, mountain range, tribe, or language group to enclose five distinct areas that are now Southern Colorado; Western Colorado; the EasternPlains; the Front Range along the eastern face of the mountains; andMetropolitan Denver. Each of these regions within the state’s man-made boundaries vastly differs in terms of populations, communities, cultures, communications, and economies that have evolved from their varied geography and histories.
