On day 2 of our Native American Cultural Immersion trip, our group of 22 people visited the hallowed ground of the Washita Massacre from 1868. A peaceful camp of Cheyenne were attached by the 7th Calvary, killing as many as 60 native people. Included among the dead was Chief Black Kettle, who had tried for years to secure peace for his people by signing treaties with the U.S. government, along with his wife. And 53 women and children were taken captive.
