Join our newest State Historian, prolific author Tom “Dr. Colorado” Noel, as he reflects on five decades of studying Colorado history and how he’s seen the field rethink the state’s heritage. In this address he’ll look head-on at historians’ portrayals of American Indian history and at the ways Native Americans have chosen to portray their own past. See the stories of the first Coloradans in a whole new light.
This lecture is also being presented at 7:00 pm.
