Video Interview With Siblings Who Knew the “Indian Trees” In the 1940s
Janet Shown, NASTaP Vice President, Video interviewer
I am so excited to share the link below. It is a video interview I took August 1, 2022 at Glen Isle Resort, Bailey, Colorado. Two couples came in, including a brother and sister. Each were born in the 1940s. Their family had a cabin in Bailey not too far from Glen Isle. They both remember their mother telling them to watch for bent “Indian trees” along US Highway 285. Like the owners of Glen Isle, the sister knew the trees as directional indicators. The family’s Bailey area property included a tree with two 90° turns in it. I interpreted that tree as a typical Ute burial tree.
