SHAWSHEEN'S STORY

Shawsheen Elementary is named in honor of a Ute heroine, Shawsheen, who helped gain the release of members of the Meeker and Price families who had been taken captive after the Battle of Milk Creek in 1879. 

Shawsheen was a beautiful Indigenous woman. In 1863, she was within minutes of being burned to death by the Cheyenne, at the site in Greeley now known as Island Grove Park, when she was rescued by Company B of the First Colorado Regiment.
