Andulia Davis is a Native American tribal storyteller and a member of the Jicarilla Apache Nation in Dulce, NM. Storytelling is an important part of the Jicarilla traditions and is used to educate the younger generations about the history of the nation and how it came to be. Andulia’s father was a medicine man and her grandfather, Augustine Vigil, was one of five chiefs who went to Washington D.C. in the 1880’s to secure reservation lands for Jicarilla Apache Nation.

Charles Martinez is a true Pagosa Springs native.  He has had a connection with Chimney Rock since youth, when he worked with Y.C.C. reconstructing ruins.
