The Sand Creek Massacre occurred on November 29th, 1864, when Colonel John M. Chivington and his troops attacked a tribe of Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians, killing 150. After an interdisciplinary process that ended in 1999, Sand Creek was added to the National Register of Historic Places despite the conflicts that arose when scientific archeological findings conflicted with tribes' oral histories about the actual location of the event.
