Boulder sunrise at Settlers/ The People’s Crossing Park
The City of Boulder has renamed “Settler’s Park” in west Boulder to “The Peoples’ Crossing” – a name developed by representatives from federally recognized American Indian Tribes. The name honors the area as a crossroads for Indigenous Peoples who have traversed and lived in the mountains and plains of the Boulder area since time immemorial.
The city plans to officially implement the name change – with new trailhead signs and website changes – before Indigenous Peoples Day in October. The city also anticipates installing temporary signs on current interpretative panels in the area to help inform visitors of the name change, its meaning and how Tribal Nations helped rename the area.
