“Ute Indian Prayer Trees of the Pikes Peak Region”

When: Tue., Oct. 7, 9 a.m. 2014

John Anderson knows a thing or two about Ute prayer trees in the Rocky Mountains. How much does he know? Why, he wrote the book on them, set to come out later this year. And if you want to know more, head to Pikes Peak Community College's Centennial Campus (5675 S. Academy Blvd., 502-3007) at 9 o'clock this morning. Anderson, a retired El Paso County sheriff, will discuss the variety of reasons the Utes modified trees, which include "navigational, medicinal, nutritional, educational, burial or spiritual purposes." Next time you hike, you'll know why and how that tree is bent the way it is. — Griffin Swartzell
