hello everyone-this is my first post on this site and on the subject of dulce. as my subject suggests i do live in dulce. i live with my partner who
was born and raised on the reservation. i thought i would try and clear some confusion up on the subject. maybe some of these questions have been
answered, maybe not. please bare with me.
dulce is a very small town. everyone pretty much knows everyones business. it is a reservation and the majority of the population is native
american.there is one hotel (holiday inn) a grocery store and several small restraunts. now since it is a reservation, it is tribal land. meaning the
tribe owns all the land thats part of the reservation. now the thing is if you are not a tribal member, you cannot go onto the tribal owned land.
that is unless you are with someone that is jicarilla (apache)
that does not mean that you cannot visit or live on the reservation though. for example archuleta is considered tribal land. to even drive up onto
archuleta you have to be from there or with someone that is. for the first time since i have lived there i went atop of archuleta about a month ago.
its very beautiful. your surrounded by nothing but trees and fresh air and wildlife.
to drive in that type of terrain, you need to have a truck or some type of suv that is four wheel drive. do not even attempt to drive up in a car. its
very easy to get lost or stuck up there. its also very confusing and you need to be with someone that knows the land like the back of there hand.
fortunately i do and when we drove up archuleta i experienced several things. the very first thing i noticed was the static electricity. it was crazy!
when i touched my seat belt i was shocked. when i picked up my cell phone i got shocked. the people i was with were experiencing the same things.
another thing was the gas gauge. before we left we had gotten gas but we ONLY filled up half a tank. i noticed that as we got higher into the mesa
the gas had read full. that was really odd for us. the last thing that we experienced was perhaps the oddest. i was kind of nervous to be ontop of
archuleta to begin with. we had gotten to a certain point where we had reached a gate. it was more like a ranchers gate but said not to cross, as we
were heading into the ute reservation land which is in colorado.
so we turned around and as we were heading back down my sister had noticed about 10-15 lights against one of the mountains surrounding us. the
position of the lights were VERY similar to the lights that were seen in arizona some years back. being that it was already dark we had no way of
seeing anything but the lights. i couldnt tell if the lights were in the trees or mountains or even hovering for that matter. i was getting kind of
nervous and i thought that maybe it was a bad idea for us to be there. we continued driving (as fast as you possibly can on a mountain) and i heard my
sister say that there was some more lights. by this time we had lost sight of the first set of lights but when i looked to the direction she was
talking about there was another row of lights(my right side) it was incredible.
i have never seen anything like this before in my life. as we were watching the lights in awe one huge bright light appeared out of no where to my
left. we were all speechless. the only way to describe the light was like one huge head light blinking slowly. at that point i just wanted to get off
the mountain. so we watched the lights a little longer and continued back down. that was the craziest experience ive ever had and it was beautiful at
the same time. i cant say that what we saw were ufos but deep down i really believe we saw something out of this world. my only regret was not having
a camcorder. the time it took for us get up and down was about an hour and a half. it would be nearly impossible to go up now because of the snow we
are receiving. the best time to go exploring for anyone that is planning to go some time would be during the summer
