left hand shaped chair covered with snow in Niwot

Chief Niwot was left-handed, and the word niwot itself means left-handed. This is apparently the reason why you can see left-hand-shaped seats all around the town of Niwot now.

Whether Chief Niwot’s nails really looked so neatly trimmed or not, it’s up to you to decide. However much of Native American poetry I have read, I don’t know exactly how they used to deal with the growth of their nails.
