Sand Creek Massacre Educational Viewings

DU CLASS SMC 11.4.15 copy

“I have written, directed and produced a documentary film titled, “The Sand Creek Massacre,” a dark day in American and Colorado history. It has won many awards. It has been screened and aired in nearly every major city in the country. It has been cataloged into the Smithsonian. It has been screened in elementary, middle school, college, universities, before veteran’s groups, Indian groups, organizations, corporations, and a host of local community groups interested in helping people learn, through the film, about racism and hate so that they can elevate their understanding about these two devastating beliefs to improve community relations with everyone. You can see more information about it at http://www.sandcreekmassacre.net. You can also watch a modified version of the film at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylmM2KL5D7w&t=41s

I would like to invite you to create venues so that I can come show the film and answer questions about the subject matter of the film. I made the film to give the Cheyenne and Arapaho people a voice. They tell the Sand Creek Massacre story in the film. It is very revealing and very compelling, Please contact me so that we can work out screenings of the film.”

Sand Creek Massacre Site

 On November 29, 1864, 700 Colorado troops savagely slaughtered over 450 Cheyenne children, disabled, elders, and women in the southeastern Colorado Territory under its protection. This act became known as the Sand Creek Massacre. This film project (“Legends of the Great American West” documentary film project) is an examination of an open wound in the souls of the Cheyenne people as told from their perspective. This project chronicles that horrific 19th century event and its affect on the 21st century struggle for respectful coexistence between white and native plains cultures in the United States of America.
