"Left-handed Spoon"

I spent 4 decades of my life in Colorado, and the last 12 of those years were spent in Niwot, Colorado. This little historical town is named after “Chief Niwot” who was a peaceful, left-handed, Southern Arapahoe Indian Chief. “Niwot” literally means “left-handed” in the Southern Arapahoe language.

In honor of Chief Niwot we had “Left Hand Canyon,” “Left Hand Creek,” “Lefty’s Pizza,” and even “Left Hand Brewery” up the road, makers of “Sawtooth Ale.” I am left-handed so it seemed only natural that I would name my blog and website, “Left Hand Gallery.”
