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.

.Cops After Death Of Gregory Towns Jr. While In Custody
ATLANTA (AP) -- The family of a man who died after Atlanta-area police used stun guns on him has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the former officers and the city, the family's lawyer said.
The lawsuit, which was filed in Fulton County Superior Court, says East Point police officers used their stun guns as many as 13 times on Gregory Towns Jr. while he was handcuffed. The lawsuit claims former police sergeant Marcus Eberhart and former corporal Howard Weems used excessive force in the April 11 incident.
"It's just heinous," attorney Chris Stewart told The Associated Press in a phone interview Thursday. "This isn't one of those cases where he punched an officer and they had to Taser him to calm him down."
The lawsuit comes amid increased attention on police use of force in the wake of the fatal shooting in of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Following that shooting, local police in Ferguson donned riot gear and fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters who refused to disperse and, at times, broke into nearby businesses.
While many police officers use their authority appropriately, there are some who view any act of disobedience as a call for extreme action, Stewart said.
"In our case, it wasn't about color, obviously, because the officers were black," Stewart said. "It was about power. He didn't walk when they said walk. He didn't stand when they said stand. And he didn't move fast enough when they said move."
John Georgis, owner and creator of Banjo Billy's Bus Tours, joins us for some tales of haunted real estate in the Boulder and Denver communities.
John’s been with the tour since the beginning, what with being Banjo Billy and all. It was his idea and his hard work that brought us all into this fantastic view of history. To this day he remains the core, the rock, the backbone that Banjo Billy’s Bus Tours is built on.
Banjo Billy offers guided bus tours through the clandestine tales of crime and the legends of lingering souls that litter the streets of Boulder and Denver.During your 90 minute tour, eloquent historians and legend-keepers will share stories of the paranormal and macabre. Local ghost stories – from haunted mansions to unexplained sights and sounds – are a fun way to enjoy the weeks leading up to Halloween.
In 1927, Ms. Campbell moves from one haunted house to another. See both houses. Hear both stories.
Mackey Auditorium is a beautiful building with a dark murder that still haunts from 1966.
The Croke – Patterson Mansion maybe the most haunted place in Colorado. Yep, even better than the Stanley in Estes Park.
Why do some people feel as if there are seemingly-random cold spots on the grounds of Cheeseman park? Could it be because the park used to be a graveyard?
Denver fire station number one has four ghosts and three are friendly.
Learn about these ghost stories – and more – during your tour.
Why are more & more police officers becoming murderers hidden behind police uniforms? Why aren't these political leaders nationwide ignoring this SERIOUS problem? Why are the National Guards that consist of our family members and dear friends being used against us when we demand these senseless murders to cease? It seems like these police officers are mainly targeting "black men" although we know men of other races and nationalities [especially the Hispanic men] are being singled out & targeted. Zimmerman completely disobeied the instructions of the dispatch policer officer to NOT follow Trayvon, but he ignore the order causing an unnecessary comfortation with Trayvon. Zimmerman ASSUMED he would be able to over power Trayvon because he's much larger; however, when Trayvon was whooping Zimmerman's butt. Zimmerman shoot & kills Trayvon in cold blood. Our tax dollars are being wasted by putting Zimmerman in protective custody. We shouldn't be funding the protection of a malicious killer. If Zimmerman truly felt his life was in danger at the moment & time he and Trayvon were in a physical fight, then Zimmerman shouldn't have NEVER EVER followed Trayvon. Zimmerman's disobedience to the law put him in that situation NOT Trayvon.
Michael Brown was INTENTIONALLY targeted because he is a young black man. Therefore, these bullies in police uniforms decided to confront him harassing him although he wasn't violating ANY laws at the time they approached him. Now, this young man is dead due to murderers in police uniforms.
Eric Gardner has a lengthy criminal history according the news reports and many police officers purposely target "black men" particularly who have such record to try to justify their reasonings for harassing & killing them.
Yes, we in Luqman Nation realize that America is in the midst of another revolution, and, as usual, the identified "leaders" of the revolution are being questioned. Is Rev. Al Sharpton a help or a hinderance to the revolution to demand greater and better accountability for law encrocement in America? Should his distant past still be used to discredit his current efforts? Is he getting paid to sell out the revolution? Is he too much of a distraction?
Also, we'll talk about the idea being floated around some social media and other conversations that demanding greater and better accountabilty for bad police officers is equivalent to being against all police officers. We'll talk about the "Breathe Easy" t-shirt controversy, the recent shooting in Brooklyn, and the offense that some police officerrs and law enforcement organizations are expressing at the show of support and solidarity to this movement being shown across the country.
We hope you can join in on the conversation.
SPONSORED BY MARK PITTMAN--Tamir Rice was a 12-yr-old boy brandishing a toy gun in an empty playground in Cleveland, Ohio when 911 was called. Although there is nothing threatening about the boy's physical appearanace, nor was there any signs of threatening behavior wither before or after the police arrived, Tamir was almost instantaneously shot to death when they arrived. on the other hand, Joseph Houseman, a 63-year-old Caucasian male who was drunk, disorderly and waving both a real machine gun as well as directing the police toward his genitals was not apprehended or penalized for his actions. Additionally, young Tamir's father's history of domestic violence and his movement toward his toy gun was mentioned in the police's attempts to justify murdering the pre-teen while the media branded the older intoxicated man a herodefending his right to bear arms. Many other cases involving blatant police infractions against the public, despite their race, will be touched on tonight. The System of American police forces ' mentality toward Black suspects as opposed to their White counterparts remains clear, as is the need for Black America to become a system of self-preserving mentality.
