Broomfield Insight Series: Film screening, Only the Earth and the Mountains and panel discussion
Broomfield Auditorium, 3 Community Park Road Wednesday, Dec 1, 7 p.m. Free, Walk-in
"Only the Earth and the Mountains" by filmmaker Elleni Sclavenitis interrogates the narrative of settler colonialism in the American West by white pioneers and its implications to society today by examining the repercussions of the Sand Creek Massacre, in which more than 200 Cheyenne and Arapaho people were murdered by U.S. Cavalry troops on November 29, 1864. In speaking to the survivors’ descendants, it becomes clear that this event is a living, perpetual loss—one that should not be forgotten.
After the thirty-minute film, stay for a panel discussion.
