2017 Annual Gathering in honor of Chief Niwot

Exploring Traditional Knowledge, Sacred Space, and Ancestral Objects.

Presented by the Museum of Boulder and the Native American Rights Fund.

The cultures of Native Americans in the United States and indigenous peoples around the world are vitally expressive and deeply tied to the natural landscape, as well as vulnerable to ongoing exploitation by others.

Join us for a series of powerful presentations and interactive discussions about issues in cultural appropriation, representation, and revitalization.

All events free and open to the public. For more information visit https://www.eventbrite.com/o/museum-of-boulder/.
