Remembering Sand Creek’s men of peace

At the Capitol reduced

Otto Braided Head of the Northern Cheyenne in Montana, seen here in the red head-band, led the remembrance of Sand Creek last year. After first meeting at Sand Creek, some of the younger members ran portions of the 180 miles to Denver. In Denver, they began the day at Riverside Cemetery, north of downtown, where Silas Soule is buried, then continued to the corner of 15th and Arapahoe, the site of where Soule was killed, before continuing to the west steps of the Colorado Capitol.
