Watching The Shining for the first time, and I have one big question about it...

The setting is supposed to be Colorado, yes? High enough into the mountains that the air is thin, and the skiing is great but the hotel still doesn't stay open in the winter. And also... built on an "Indian Burial Ground," and the builders of the hotel even had to "fight off Indians" during construction in the early 1900s.

So my question is - what fucking Native group lived THAT high up in the Rockies, or at least close enough to use the area as a burial ground? And continued living there into the early 1900s... y'know, long after Indian Removal?

Sorry, Steven King/Stanley Kubrick, your lack of research is showing.
