Join Deborah Espinosa as she tells the history of one of Colorado’s most important trailblazers: Teresita Sandoval. Deborah will highlight how Teresita, who may never have called herself a Chicana, set a path for activism for women to follow in for years to come.
Teresita Sandoval was one of the first women of European descent to live in modern-day Colorado. Born in Taos, New Mexico, Sandoval eventually moved to Fort El Pueblo, a trading post along the Arkansas River. She was instrumental to the construction and operations at the outpost.
