In June 2013, History Colorado welcomed Tribal representatives from the Northern Cheyenne of Montana, the Northern Arapaho of Wyoming, and the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma, along with officials from the National Park Service Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site, to the History Colorado Center for a Tribal consultation that was convened by the Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs. During the consultation, concerns that had been expressed by the Tribes about the exhibit on the Sand Creek Massacre at the History Colorado Center were discussed. The consultation also served as an opportunity to envision a longterm relationship and partnership between the Tribes and History Colorado. The exhibit will remain closed as consultations continue.
