Boulder Indigenous Peoples Day 2018

Join the Boulder JCC in Honoring Indigenous Peoples’ Day

Throughout our country, people are re-assessing how we memorialize our history, especially in regard to racial injustice and conflict. This is an immediate challenge — and opportunity — for the people of Boulder County. The Boulder JCC is working with Right Relationship Boulder to present a virtual program on Wednesday, October 13 at 7 pm MT, on Fort Chambers, one of the staging grounds for the 1864 Sand Creek Massacre

The City of Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) department is considering how to protect and develop the site of Fort Chambers, which was one of the staging grounds for the 1864 Sand Creek Massacre where 230 Cheyenne and Arapaho people were killed. Right Relationship Boulder is advocating for Cheyenne and Arapaho people to determine how this history should be memorialized at the Fort Chambers OSMP site.

Right Relationship Boulder volunteers will narrate a slide presentation about the connections between the Boulder Valley and the Sand Creek Massacre, followed by an open discussion. This is a free virtual program. Registration required.
