NARF Co-Sponsors Series on Chief Niwot

 
 
Over the course of the next few months, NARF will co-sponsor a series of programs presented by distinguished historians and guests that will further explore 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.

For those who live in Colorado and specifically the Boulder area, please join us next Thursday, August 30 from 7:00-8:30pm for the first event, Too Close To Home: Facing Sand Creek on the CU-Boulder Campus, presented by University of Colorado Professor, historian, and MacArthur ‘genius grant’ winner, Patricia Limerick.  Professor Limerick will discuss the process and protests involved in changing the name of CU dormitory Nichols Hall to Cheyenne Arapaho Hall.  For additional information on this specific talk and ticket prices, click here.
