Historic Tribes of Colorado

The Colorado Tribal Contacts List is a directory designed for cultural resource managers and others wishing to contact tribes with a legacy of occupation in Colorado. The Colorado Tribal Contacts List has been developed with assistance from the National Park Service Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) Grants program, and is produced through an interagency partnership between the Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs (CCIA) and History Colorado. 

Per executive memorandum "Government-to-Government Relations with Native American Tribal Governments" (59 FR 22951), federal agencies are required to consult with Indian nations on a government-to-government basis. Accordingly, the names and addresses of Tribal leaders and, if provided, NAGPRA representatives and Tribal Historic Preservation Officers are listed below as conveyed by tribal headquarters. As always, those using this list are advised to confirm each Tribe's consultation protocol and contact information for each project. 

Please report corrections and modifications to CCIA's Executive Director, Kathryn Redhorse at Kathryn.Redhorse@state.co.us.
