Betty Howe grew up mostly in Towaoc, Colorado. But her earliest memories take her back to living at her father’s livestock camp in Mancos Creek near the New Mexico border.
The camp was a world Betty left behind when she moved to Towaoc to start school. But even now, she can offer impressionistic details of daily life, from morning rituals and everyday chores, to her favorite horses.
Betty Howe is a member of the Ute Mountain Ute tribe. She lives in Towaoc, Colorado.
