ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Conejos Land Grant history. The petition of José Seledón Valdez for lands along the Conejos River was granted by the Territory of New Mexico’s governor. In a war with Mexico, the victorious U.S. claimed the Territory of New Mexico. Claims for the Conejos Land Grant failed until a territorial election was conducted. Recently, the Colorado Supreme Court give rights on the heirs of Sangre de Cristo Land Grant beside the Conejos Land Grant to use the land.
