“…Colorado’s Hispanics and Chicanos⁠
appreciate the hardships and obstacles overcome by their parents and grandparents so⁠ that they could capture a share of the⁠ American Dream. And many are thankful for the⁠ rich legacy of social and moral values carried⁠ down to them by their indigenous and⁠ Spanish forebears.” - José Aguayo⁠

From Sept. 15-Oct. 15 we celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of Hispanics within the Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area, a history which goes back to the 1850s, when the first substantiated Hispanic settler arrived to Larimer County.⁠
