Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site

"Many years have passed. The land is still here. We lived here, our clans lived here. The land here is our home - we have come back home."

The Sand Creek Massacre resulted in the deaths of over 150 Cheyenne and Arapaho people, many of them women and children. During the attack, and throughout the following day, scalps and other body parts were cut from many of the victims. In addition, robes, headdresses, moccasins, and other personal items were taken from bodies of the deceased.

In the following years and generations, a portion of these items were donated, bequeathed, sold, or by other means, acquired by museums and other repositories.

On June 2, 2008, the first burial of human remains from the Sand Creek Massacre occurred in this area. It is anticipated additional remains and objects from the massacre will be interred here in the future.
