Inclusivity, Green Team, and Outreach would like to invite Mountain View members to travel to Louisville on October 6 for a presentation by Right Relationship Boulder. Please consider joining in with our greater Boulder community for this important exploration into relationship building.
“Fort Chambers: A Call for Boulder County to Reckon with our History and Build Right Relationships with Indigenous Peoples.”
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 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 Paula Palmer, Christine Quinlan, and Tim Harmos will narrate a slide presentation about the connections between the Boulder Valley and the Sand Creek Massacre, followed by open discussion.
All are invited to come to a FREE presentation at the Louisville Library at 7 pm on October 6, offered by Right Relationship Boulder. The slide presentation is called “Fort Chambers: A Call for Boulder County to Reckon with our History and Build Right Relationships with Indigenous Peoples.” The program is free, but you need to Register here. Note: if the City of Louisville cancels in-person gatherings at the library, this program will be offered online.
