Poudre Pub Talk: Ancient Bison Hunters of the Poudre @ High Hops Brewery | Windsor | Colorado | United States

As a lead up to the second annual Poudre Pour, the Poudre Heritage Alliance will be presenting a series of educational pub talks at local breweries throughout Northern Colorado. For the March 9th Pub Talk at High Hops Brewery, Dr. Jason M. LaBelle from Colorado State University will be highlighting how Native American tribes relied on the Poudre River and its bounty–including the bison herds the river attracted–to thrive in the Poudre Valley long before any white settlers came to the region. Additionally, Dr. LaBelle will discuss his studies on the Kaplan-Hoover Bison Bonebed site, which lies just a few miles southeast of High Hops Brewing.

Dr. LaBelle is an archaeologist interested in Native American foragers inhabiting the Great Plains and Rocky Mountains of North America, with research spanning several periods over the last 12,000 years. His current work involves landscape level survey and testing of prehistoric and protohistoric sites surrounding the Lindenmeier Folsom site, a National Historic Landmark. Dr. LaBelle is currently Past-President of the Colorado Council of Professional Archaeologists and has actively worked with avocational archaeologists throughout the Plains in documenting their collections.
