at the Native American Rights Fund
1506 Broadway, Boulder, CO

In conjunction with the powerful exhibit, Chief Niwot ~ Legend & Legacy, the Boulder History Museum and the Native American Rights Fund are proud to co-sponsor a thought-provoking series of programs presented by distinguished historians and guests. This series further explores the culture of the Arapaho people, regional historical figures, the devastating effects of the Sand Creek Massacre, as well as contemporary Native Americans on the Wind River Reservation and in urban centers.

This Thursday, September 6 • Forgotten Heroes and Villains of Sand Creek

Author of 2010 History Press book of the above title, Carol Turner is a popular Colorado history columnist. Chief Niwot, as well as Captain Silas Soule and Major Edward Wynkoop, are some of the inspirational figures in our local history who are not well-known. Their stories are wrapped up in the violent history of the Sand Creek Massacre in November of 1864. Turner will introduce us to the many historical individuals involved in the massacre, and share how she became interested in the topic.
