In the spirit of healing, the Native American and Indigenous Student Alliance (NAISA) has invited representative descendants of the Northern Cheyenne, Northern Arapaho, and Southern Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes to share their stories and speak on the events of the Sand Creek Massacre as well as initiatives currently underway within their tribal communities to heal from the tragic event. This event is an opportunity to learn about the massacre and Northwestern’s place in this history. The event will include remarks from the descendants and close with a meal.
