Thurs. 04/16 11a: Some Native Americans remember violence experienced by their ancestors through journeys across the lands where those events took place. They remember the Fort Robinson outbreak and Sand Creek Massacre with healing runs, the Wounded Knee Massacre with a horse ride and the Trail of Tears with a bike ride.  What is the purpose of remembering these events through walks and rides? Do you think it is healing or harmful to retrace these trails and remember those atrocities?
