Between the Boulder Holiday Gift Festival and the upcoming Boulder History Museum presentation, Boulder residents and visitors alike will have two interesting events to attend.

In the case of the Boulder Holiday Gift Festival, people have likely seen the poster printing and flyers around town. Hosted at Elks Lodge, admission is free to anyone who’s interested in browsing through the available items on display. Taking place December 11, 2011 from noon to 6:00 p.m., the Holiday Gift Festival is being billed as:

“The Last Big Event of the year, featuring the finest selection of Holiday Art, Crafts, Food & Gifts.”

Those planning to attend will also receive free hot chocolate.

Backed by the Boulder History Museum, Boulder Conversations with Extraordinary people will be featuring John Ecohawk December 13, 2011 at Chautauqua Dining Hall.

According to the advertisements, Mr. Ecohawk’s biography is stated as follows:

“John Echohawk has been recognized as one of the 100 most influential lawyers in America by the National Law Journal and has received numerous service awards and other recognition for his leadership in the Indian law field. He is the Executive Director of the Native American Rights Fund. He was the first graduate of the University of New Mexico’s special program to train Indian lawyers, and was a founding member of the American Indian Law Students Association while in law school. John has been with NARF since its inception, having served continuously as Executive Director since 1977.”

Starting at 5:30 p.m., those who attend will be treated to refreshments as well. Admission to this event is priced at a very affordable $15.00.
