Abstract:

This project highlights the use of family history in telling the story of Colorado settlement and development over the past 150 years. the basic social unit of humanity is family. Families shape settlement patterns, control community hierarchies and development, and leave their distinctive imprint on that place they call home. the modern Front Range region of Colorado resulted from the hard work of common families who created suitable, sustainable communities for countless generations to live.

Taking its name from one of the first names proposed for Colorado Territory, the film and contextual essay entitled Tahosa Territory, a Colorado Front Range Family, tells the story of the development of the Front Range region in Colorado as traced through the experiences of one multi-branched family over 150 years. the heterogeneous Mosch family chosen for this study represents a myriad of ancestral immigration paths to Colorado, demonstrates the many occupations the settlers followed in the state, and illustrates how family members constantly altered the landscape.

Mosch men and women worked in the most dangerous occupations - timbering, mining, and farming - in some of the nation's most dangerous terrain. Mosch family members pioneered agricultural techniques, harvested natural resources, ingeniously controlled water flow, constructed roads, and over the last century and a half created communities complete with schools and churches. Archetypal rugged men conquered mountain barriers or died trying. Strong-willed females helped to define new roles for women in ranching, mining, and industry while they coped with abuse, divorce, sickness, children's deaths, and sexist laws that deprived them of their rights.

Through historic recordings and first person stories, Tahosa Territory provides insight to the many streams of family life in Colorado since settlement. It offers a model for future studies of regional development from the perspective of the family.
