Posted on 10/11/2006 4:37:22 PM PDT by NorCoGOP
Please take a look at this. Solomon Little Owl, the democrat candidate for Colorado Senate District 13 has a Ward Churchill book on the recommended reading list of their department!
He is running against Scott Renfroe, Republican, for District 13 - Weld County.
Perhaps this needs more publicity, Freepers....
Look about 3/4 of the way down the list - there it is..."A Little Matter of Genocide"...by the disgraced Ward Churchill.

Assessing Ward Churchills Version of the 1837 Smallpox Epidemic
Situating Churchills rendition of the epidemic in a broader historiographical analysis, one must reluctantly conclude that Churchill fabricated the most crucial details of his genocide story. Churchill radically misrepresented the sources he cites in support of his genocide charges, sources which say essentially the opposite of what Churchill attributes to them.
It is a distressing conclusion. One wants to think the best of fellow scholars. The scholarly enterprise depends on mutual trust. When one scholar violates that trust, it damages the legitimacy of the entire academy. Churchill has fabricated a genocide that never happened. It is difficult to conceive of a social scientist committing a more egregious violation.
So who did Churchill copy his book from?
Is Little Owl really an indian?
It sounds like a made-up name.
Solomon Little Owl is also "best" known for his forming of the "Fighting Whities" Intramural team a few years back, giving UNC a lot of UNECESSARY publicity....
That ought to really go over well in Weld County.
If you live in the SD 13 area (Weld County, and I believe portions of Larimer and other counties) - be sure to write a letter to the Tribune about this - get this publicized early and often!
