Every year, Tesoro Cultural Center is proud to present its Historic Lecture Series, featuring renowned scholars, historians and authors in the field of 19th century American Western History.
Through dinner lectures at The Fort Restaurant and free lectures for the community offered in partnership with Tattered Cover, our historic lectures explore the American West from every angle, uncovering art and music from the era and examining historical events and important figures from unique perspectives.
If you’re unable to attend a historic lecture that interests you, we livestream every lecture on our Facebook page. Simply visit our page during the scheduled lecture time to watch the live recording, or navigate to the “Videos” tab on our page, where you’ll find our entire archive of historic lectures from the last five years. Learn about the Leonid Meteor Shower of 1833 in one of our most popular lectures, “The Night the Stars Fell,” explore Colorado’s rich history with state historian Dr. Tom Noel or enjoy songs and tales from the Santa Fe Trail. There’s so much to discover about the American West from leading experts in the field.
Whether you join us in person or tune in online, we hope to see you at the remaining lectures of our 2021/2022 series: “New Mexico: French Presence Since the 1500s” on April 10, and “White Thunder, Cheyenne Holy Man” on May 1!
