Open Space Speaker Series Presents: Insight Series: Film Screening, Only the Earth and the Mountains and Panel Discussion
Join us on December 1 at 7 pm at the Broomfield Auditorium.
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 with members of the Arapaho and Cheyenne nations.
Presented by Creative Broomfield, the City and County of Broomfield Open Space and Trails, and the Broomfield Open Space Foundation.
