Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site

Though the Sand Creek Massacre has long passed, memories live on. Cheyenne and Arapaho return here to pray and pay tribute to ancestors who both perished and survived that dreadful day.

Ever resilient, the Cheyenne and Arapaho nations of today number in the thousands. Many reside in communities in western Oklahoma and on reservation lands near Ethete, Wyoming and Lame Deer, Montana.

Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site reminds us not only of the atrocities that occurred here, but those that continue to be inflicted on cultures throughout the world. It is a place to rest torments of the past, but moreover, to inspire us to keep them from happening again.
