Professors leads informational talk on the area’s natives

November 10, 2012 by  

The Colorado’s Real Native event will focus on the Arapaho, the Cheyenne, and the Ute native people who lived in Colorado long before white man ventured into the territory. This educational discussion and lecture will focus on the history of the early native settlers and is suitable for all anyone who has an interest in learning more about these proud people.

Before pioneers settled in Colorado Territory, the Cheyenne and Arapaho natives settled on the plains, while the Ute natives called the mountains home. This educational session on this subject will be led by Thomas J. Noel, who is a Professor of History, as well as the Director of Colorado Studies at the Colorado University – Denver. He has also had a hand in 40 books, writes a weekly Sunday column for the Denver Post, and does a television appearance on Channel 9 – Colorado and Company – as the renowned Dr. Colorado.

Poster printing and flyer printing are likely to have been the methods used to spread the word about this historic and educational lecture to area residents and those in neighboring communities. Admission is $10 per person or $5 for members of the Boulder History Museum and NARF Donors.

Colorado’s Real Natives will be happening on Tuesday, November 13, beginning at 7:00 pm at the Native American Rights Fund located at 1506 Broadway Street in Boulder, Colorado. For additional news or to reserve tickets, please visit the Boulder History Museum website.
