Sand Creek, 'Wiping the Tears'

Marty Chase Alone, Oglala, representating the Red Cloud people and a Tiospaye of the Big Road Band, led ceremonies at the Sand Creek Massacre site to release the spirits and wipe the tears. Chase Alone's relatives were descendants of White Antelope and Yellow Wolf, massacred at Sand Creek.
During presentations to the Longest Walk Northern Route, Chase Alone also presented the Longest Walk with a staff representing Native American Prisoners to carry to Washington in their struggle to ensure the ceremonial rights for inmates. Listen to today's interview at Earthcycles:
