Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
In the early 1860s, white settlers entered the area which is now Colorado in search of gold. The events that followed would change them and the Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians forever. In this lecture, University of Colorado Professor, historian and MacArthur genius grant' winner Patricia Limerick describes researching the Sand Creek massacre for the University's regents who were under pressure to change the name of Nichols Hall. The building was named for one of the key commanders of the soldiers who killed close to 200 people, mainly women and children. The lecture is the first in a series of eight, "Chief Niwot: Legend and Legacy," presented earlier this fall by a partnership of the Boulder History Museum and the Native American Rights Fund. The series is one component of a multi-faceted program, One Action, One Boulder, to encourage a community conversation about its history and the state of race and class today.  Patricia Limerick
