Denver Public Library and Craig Bergsgaard Studios present:
Lessons Learned at Bloody Sand Creek, a free panel discussion on one of the most infamous chapters in Colorado history.
Sunday, April 17, 2 p.m.
Central Library, Level B2 Conference Center
Of all the atrocities perpetrated on the Native American people during the Westward expansion, Colorado was home to one of the worst: The Sand Creek Massacre.
On November 29, 1864, on the banks of the Sand Creek in southeastern Colorado, a 700-man militia raided a peaceful Cheyenne and Arapaho settlement, slaughtering and mutilating the inhabitants—most of whom were women, children, and elders.
For 146 years, people have been trying to understand why and how seemingly civilized people could perpetrate such a grisly act.
