Tubac Presidio Speaker Event “The Plains Indian Wars, 1st Half – Special Presentation by Jack Lasseter”
November 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm$15.00
It is an American saga that is too large to be told in one sitting. The first half of the story takes us from those early troubles along the Platte River Trail in the 1850s, to spring of 1868, when the Lakota Sioux have gained control of the Northern Plains, and the Cheyenne Dog Soldiers with full fury are repeatedly raiding railroad routes on the Central Plains. Jack will tell us about various incidents and fights, describe the Sioux and Cheyenne people and culture including dance, bison, the teepee, gift giving, bravery, battle cries, and the dog soldiers. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. $15 per lecture. A portion of the proceeds supports our education and preservation programs. Please call for reservations and future dates, 520-398-2252.
