Did you know that our mountain area is filled with shaped trees, stones, and landmarks left by Native Americans over the past 10,000 years? Hundreds, thousands of examples are all over our mountain community. Some of us are lucky to live on land that has sacred sites, including intact medicine wheels, moki steps (handholds and footholds up rocks), wildly-shaped Ute prayer trees or other tribal modified trees, artifacts, and rock art.
You can find out more about these amazing living artifacts and cultural landmarks by following the link below to the new website for the Association for Native American Sacred Trees and Places - or NASTaP. Founded with the leadership of Ute elder, Dr. James Jefferson and author John Anderson, NASTaP is an international membership association for anyone interested in Native American culturally modified trees, modified rocks and stone landmarks, rock art, ancient Native American archeology and culture, and ceremonial landscapes. Please visit our new website at the link below and go back there often for more information on CMT tours, the annual conference, consultation, and much more. And visit our new headquarters at Glen Isle Resort in Bailey, CO!! Built on a Native American encampment, Glen Isle is filled with artifacts and surrounded by amazing Native American-modified trees and landmarks. We're proud to call Glen Isle our home!
