Sand Creek Massacre Trail honors victims

The Sand Creek Massacre Trail was finally dedicated on Wednesday, more than 100 years after U.S. Army soldiers brutally murdered more than 150 Cheyenne and Arapaho women, children and elders in Colorado.

Cheyenne and Arapaho members attended the dedication ceremony in Cheyenne, Wyoming. ��It�s finally done,�� Gail Ridgely, a Northern Arapaho whose ancestor survived the November 29, 1864, massacre, told the Associated Press.

The trail runs from the Colorado border to the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming.
