Ethete


This reservation fringe town began in 1887 as a post office, railroad station, and Episcopalian mission. The Arapaho name (pronounced Ee-thuh-tee), meaning "good," indicates the tribe approved of the development. It was important to have alternate gathering places for the different tribes, who still fostered old rivalries. The village is now a colorful hodge-podge of eclectic cobblestone and log buildings, dominated by the old mission, and decorated in artistic Arapaho splendor.
