Carol Taylor of the Boulder History Museum joins Duane Duggan to discuss the Chief Niwot exhibit. To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the tragic massacre at Sand Creek, Colorado, the Boulder History Museum is re-introducing the award-winning exhibition, Chief Niwot~Legend & Legacy, with new content and artifacts previously not on display.
Chief Niwot struggled to find peace during the most fateful years in Southern Arapaho history. His life and legacy are revealed in this exhibit along with the Arapahos’ place in Boulder’s history.
The Boulder History Museum is excited to present the powerful story Chief Niwot, one of the most notable Indians of the plains, a man about whom legends were made. Niwot’s story is one of honor and deceit, hope and despair. When hoards of white men began migrating to the central plains in the mid-nineteenth century, they moved into the land that was home to the Arapaho and Cheyenne Indians. In 1858, the Arapaho Chief Niwot (translated in English as Left Hand) astonished the early gold-seekers in Colorado by greeting them in their own language. He and his tribe hoped to make peace with the newcomers to allow the two cultures to share the same land and coexist peacefully. Niwot devoted his life to this struggle but his efforts ultimately failed. He was mortally wounded at the Sand Creek Massacre in 1864. This exhibit is the first to reveal the story of Chief Niwot and the complexity his struggle to find peace during the most fateful years in the history of the Southern Arapaho Indians.
and between friends. Our community will be strengthened by exploring a pivotal piece of regional history in its rightful context.

John McElveen joins host Duane Duggan to discuss new construction in Boulder. John is almost a hometown boy, with 36 years spent here in Boulder. John moved to the area in 1972 after finishing his undergrad degree. John had ideas of attending law school, but those ideas gave way to a real estate career that has now spanned over 30 years.
Early years of bartending at "the Sink on the Hill" and occasional stand-in/print double work for Robin Williams on the Mork & Mindy series gives John unique insights into Boulder (including great stories about the "Old Days" of Boulder).
John and his wife, Derdre, live in one of Boulder's old neighborhoods on the west side of town, and have two young boys as well as a grown son. You can run into John at soccer fields, Little League Baseball diamonds, and at YMCA basketball games, cheering on or coaching his sons' teams.
John's career in local real estate includes 30 years of resale experience in addition to working with several of Boulder's builders and developers on new home projects such as Winding Trail Village and Wonderland Hills in the 1970's. John has also worked with developers on new urban, mixed use and condominium projects that you see in Boulder's downtown now!
