Atlanta Sand Creek Massacre

unknown 1__#$!@%!#__unknown

At the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta, I gave a presentation and screened my award-winning film, “The Sand Creek Massacre” in January of 2010, based on its invitation to do so.  Booth is expanding its archives via the internet so that they can share it with a wider audience. They will be making my presentation available on a limited basis to its members via a password protected platform such as Vimeo or You Tube.  Once they evaluate the interest level in the program, they will consider allowing full access to the public. Presently, there have been over 23,000 You Tube views of the modified version of the film.

Once again my goal for making this film has been realized.  I set to create a voice for the Cheyenne and Arapaho people so that they could educate, inform and expand awareness regarding racism, to be a channel for them to express their thoughts about this heinous act committed by the Colorado militia upon their ancestors.  

Thank you once again for all of your support and understanding. It continues to prove invaluable in my quest to keep the Cheyenne and Arapaho people’s “voice” alive.
