Racism and the Sand Creek Massacre

I became linked to the Sand Creek Massacre in 2001 because I felt ashamed for having lived in Colorado for decades and did not know much about the massacre. In 2001, there was next to nothing on the Internet about the SCM. I made a little award-winning video of it (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylmM2KL5D7w) before I made a bigger award-winning video of it. I put the little video on You Tube. It was the first video about the SCM on You Tube. Now, there are so Sand Creek Massacre videos on You Tube that I don’t even count them anymore.

So, my goal of informing, educating and creating awareness regarding
racism continues to expand via the SCM. I’ve been screening the film
and answering questions before groups, organizations, schools, colleges
and universities, so if you run across anyone who is looking for a speaker
with whom this would resonate, I’d be happy to show the film and answer
questions. This includes elementary schools. Please pass the word.

Hello, Everyone,

I have been invited to make 2 presentations about the Sand Creek Massacre at Federal Heights Elementary School
on November 14 from 10 a.m. to 11:45 a.m to 105 students. 4th graders and ELL students will attend. Linda Mauney,
Literacy Teacher at the school, said, “We are working to educate our 4th grade students about the Sand Creek
Massacre…we are looking at how the Sand Creek Massacre was told from different points of view.”

My presentation will include screening a modified version of my award-winning documentary film titled, “The Sand
Creek Massacre.” The film is a story told by Cheyenne and Arapaho tribal members. It is about how 700 Colorado
and New Mexico troops massacred an estimated 160 Cheyenne and Arapaho children, women, elders and special
needs people while the warriors were hunting.

Since the film was made to inform, to educate and to create awareness for the Cheyenne and Arapaho people and
for America’s indigenous people to fight racism, this presentation will benefit young minds who hunger to learn and
grow in an environment of love and understanding that regardless of what culture, what religion or what race anyone
is from, they are all human beings and should be perceived as human beings on equal footing with every other
human being. No one is better than anyone else.

Racism is like a cancer. It is terminal. It eats and eats away at one’s mind until hate overtakes them and destroys them.
ISIL is a perfect example of this kind of hate. To kill all infidels who do not interpret the Quran as they believe the
Prophet Mohammed wrote it to be and to follow that writing. Col. John M. Chivington and many members of the “Bloodless Third”
(nicknamed that because the members were signed up as 100-day volunteers and time was running short and they hadn’t
killed anyone as yet), the 3rd Colorado Regiment were formed out of miners, bartenders, clerks, laborers, alcoholics, criminals,
unemployed, etc. to ruthlessly and without conscience shoot, beat, rape, stab, mutilate and murder Cheyenne and Arapaho
people because of their hate for the Indian people. An idea put into their minds that all Indians were savages and did not
deserve to live.

Many of you know much more than me about racism and hate. I leave it to you to help people, particularly young people
learn that love and understanding that all human beings are in this race of life together, so we should embrace each
other and work together for a better world.

Thank you kindly for your continuing support. I deeply appreciate it.

Best Regards,

Donald L. Vasicek
