About this Event
Undoing the Noble Crusade is based on a passage from "Why We Can't Wait" a book by Martin Luther King, Jr. He wrote in 1963, "We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade." The short film by Alan O'Hashi also commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Native American Rights Fund that was established in the spirit of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. The second documentary to screen is "Beyond Sand Creek" about the efforts of the Arapaho tribe to undo stereotypes, renew their language and culture and tie those to their traditional homeland in Boulder.
Undoing the Noble Crusade is an evening of two documentaries. Tribal gencide as a result of western colonization had a big influence on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The NAACP Legal Defense Fund was the model for the Native American Rights Fund which was established 50 years ago. The second movie is "Beyond Sand Creek" about Arapaho tribal efforts to renew their language and culture and integrating those onto their homelands in Boulder. The Arapaho have been working to repatriate land back to the tribe.
