Two Oklahoma tribes support a resolution
in Colorado that recognizes the genocide of American Indians at the hands of European settlers.
The measure specifically mentions the Sand Creek Massacre of 1864, when a Colorado militia killed more than 150 Cheyennes and Arapahos, and the Trail of Tears, when about 4,000 Cherokee people died after being forced to leave their homelands.
The Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes and the Cherokee Nation are now based in Oklahoma.
