On November 29, 1864, a peaceful village of Cheyenne and Arapaho women, children, and elders was brutally attacked by US troops. As a turning point in Colorado history, we cannot address contemporary issues of equity and justice in our state without understanding the legacy of the Sand Creek Massacre.
Please join History Colorado for a seminar investigating the historical circumstances and continuing impacts of the Sand Creek Massacre, including Denver’s role in the Massacre and how contemporary Cheyenne and Arapaho people still feel its consequences today. Participants will build new knowledge and gather resources for continued learning.
Light breakfast and lunch provided.
Please register by Friday, August 12.
“The Sand Creek Massacre: The Betrayal that Changed Cheyenne and Arapaho People Forever,” was made possible by substantial grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute of Museum, and Library Services, and the Josephine H. Miles Trust.
