The Sand Creek Massacre Marks its 150th Anniversary with a Healing Run

1 of 63
November 29 marked the 150th anniversary of the Sand Creek Massacre, when over 150 members of the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes were killed by Colonel John Chivington and his volunteers. The next day, the sixteenth annual Spiritual Healing Run left Sand Creek; the runners arrived in Denver on Tuesday, when they joined in a candlelight vigil outside the Denver Art Museum. On Wednesday they convened at Riverside Cemetery before heading through downtown Denver for the State Capitol, for a commemoration ceremony. All photos by Brandon Marshall.
