Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site was established in 2007 to preserve and protect the cultural landscape of the massacre, enhance public understanding, and minimize similar incidents in the future. Saturday's program will delve into the events of the mid 1800s and describe some of the social, economic, and political factors that contributed to the Sand Creek Massacre.
