Denver Quarterly: Honoring Sand CreekPublished November 11, 2014 Posted by Denise Hill
The newest issue of The Denver Quarterly (49.1 2014) includes a special feature of work by a selection of Native American writers to mark the 150th anniversary of the infamous Sand Creek Massacre (Laird Hunt, Editor). Editors Billy J. Stratton and Eleni Sikelianos write, "The words that make up this special feature are indeed limited, and as we look through the contents we wonder how to best honor the dead of Sand Creek and their living descendants. Yet we did not request that contributors send work specifically about Sand Creek. Some of the writers in this feature are working directly with history and some are not, but in all lives the desire to 'write back' and share story and song."
