Annual Gathering in honor of Chief Niwot – What Was Ours Screening

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.

Join us for a free screening of the powerful documentary What Was Ours.

An Eastern Shoshone tribal elder and two young Northern Arapaho students leave Wind River Reservation for Chicago’s Field Museum in search of sacred objects taken from their tribes. View the trailer here.
