My award-winning documentary film, “The Sand Creek Massacre” (Best Film – Indie Film Festival, American Indian Film Festival, Trail Dance Film Festival, Golden Drover Award for Best Native American Film)can be accessed at:
I come to a class, Freshman Seminar 1111-84: History, Memory, and
Native Identity (FSEM), taught by Professor Christy-Dale Sims,
on November 4, 2015 at the University of Denver. “The Sand Creek
Massacre” film was screened, which was then followed by questions,
answers and a discussion about the massacre and racism.
Professor Sims conducted an upbeat informational and educational
forum. The students, aware and focused, exhibited maturity,
knowledge and positive energy.
Overall, I learned a heck of a lot about the massacre, racism,
freshman students in college and how bright and informed they are,
and we can thank Professor Sims and her razor-sharp mind for impressing
upon all of us how vital it is to be aware of America’s indigenous people
and how each of us act and react regarding racism.
So, I thought I’d share this with you. Due to limited time, I was unable
to get student names.
Thank you for your continuing support.
