History of the State of Colorado

As a result of archaeological research, it has been established that people lived on the territory of the modern state of Colorado already about eleven thousand years ago.

Before the arrival of Europeans, the Indians of the ancient Pueblo (Anasazi) people lived here in the south and southwest, the Comanche in the east, the Shoshone in the north and the Ute in the west.

A unique historical monument has survived to this day – rock dwellings created by the Pueblo Indians, known as Mesa Verde.

Under the pressure of the North American state expanding to the west in the 18th – 19th centuries, the Arapaho and Cheyenne Indians moved here. They settled in the eastern valleys and at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. The resettlement was not easy, the indigenous tribes and newcomers from the east fought among themselves for living space.

Later, as a result of wars and genocide, almost all Indians were expelled from the territory of Colorado, mainly to the south (to the states of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona) and to the west (to the state of Utah). The Ute Indians lived here the longest, until the eighties of the XIX century they controlled almost the entire territory of the state of Colorado west of the continental divide.

The first Europeans to explore the region of present-day Colorado were the Spanish conquistadors. At the end of the 16th century, the Spaniards included the lands in the south of Colorado as part of the province of Santa Fe de Nuevo Mexico City of their American colony, the Viceroyalty of New Spain. However, this was rather a formal step, since the Spaniards, despite repeated attempts, failed to establish permanent settlements in this region. However, they were active in trading with the Native Americans who inhabited Colorado. The name of the state of Colorado also came from the Spaniards. “Colorado” in Spanish means “red”, namely, the landscapes of the state seemed red to the first researchers.

In 1803, the United States bought Louisiana, which included Colorado, from France. The western borders of the acquired lands were not exactly known, and as a result, a border dispute arose between the United States and the Spaniards.

In 1806, a US Army reconnaissance expedition explored the disputed area. The expedition was led by Zebulon Pike, after whom Pikes Peak (Pike’s Peak) was later named. Pike’s expedition was arrested by the Spanish authorities and its materials confiscated. After a US protest, Pike and his men were released and returned to the United States.

In 1819, an agreement was concluded between the United States and Spain, according to which the United States acquired Florida, but the lands in the southwest, including the southern part of Colorado, were ceded to the Spaniards.

In practice, these lands were controlled by the Indians, the Europeans only created trading posts here. Among the most famous American outposts of that time in Colorado is Old Fort Bent, which today has the status of a US National Monument.
