Wazee Row's Chinatown Tour offers a unique view into the central enclave of Denver's early Asian pioneers. Spanning an area of six city blocks and tucked away in the streets and alleys of West Central LoDo, this area has remained largely obscure in the recounted history of Denver and has never been the subject of guided exploration. Utilizing a one of a kind composite panorama from 1880, an original layout constructed from fire maps of the period, contemporary photographs from numerous archives, and various written media from old newspapers to recently published books, we will explore the history and locale of Chinatown Denver. Topics that will be discussed include: laundries, indentured servitude and human trafficking (slavery), opium culture, spiritual practices, Qing-Ming factional rivalry, and of course, the riot of 1880. Additional results from research efforts unique to, and conducted by, Wewatta Row will also be reviewed including the unreleased information for the 'Azure Dragon' update. Historical content will not be limited to Wazee street, Blake streets early diversity will also be a topic.Tours are available daily at ten o'clock when booked online, but alternate times can be arranged. Tours are limited to small groups of four people per tour. Price is 10$ per person.

Wazee Row Feng Shui is dedicated to serious study, both historical and practical, of the ancient spiritual practice of Feng Shui. The historical aspect will work toward study, research, and furthering casual understanding of this practice through exposure to the rich history of this highly respectable and ancient belief.To the practical end, Wewatta Row is honored to bring a new school of Feng Shui to the Rocky Mountains. Discovered during the course of research into the historical Asian locales of Denver, this new "internal school", called 'Digging Creek', utilizes both 'Form' and 'Compass' schools of Feng Shui. This new school is free to all and its basics are imparted in three steps: past, present, projection. These basics appear to be accessible to all belief systems, from the religious, to the spiritual, to the atheist, and all who learn the basics, regardless of application, will have the ability to see the great value in its unique simplicity.
