Lack of Tribal Consultation Leads to Conflict at a Denver Museum – ICTMN.com

SandCreekSiteSign_webA REALLY interesting and relevant story about a  history exhibit in Denver that is making people angry:

“This is an open wound—this is not healed,” Halaas said. “Let’s sit down together, and while we’re doing that, close this thing and reopen it after full consultation—that’s what the tribes want.”

“After all,” he concluded, “it isn’t their [museum officials’] history—but it’s affected every tribal family.”
