Cheyenne Autumn

Page 3 of 3

Cheyenne Dog Soldiers reinforces the realization, as did Real West, that art, just like written records, can tell us our history in very precise and specific ways. It's a moral that has been noted only recently by the powers that be at the history museum. Let's hope they'll continue to take this important message to heart.

Cheyenne Dog Soldiers, through August 3 at the Colorado History Museum, 1300 Broadway, 866-3682.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
