songwriter: Buffy Sainte-Marie
performed by: Buffy Sainte-Marie
date released: 1970 by Buffy Sainte-Marie as the theme song for a film of the same name

During the Indian Wars in the U.S., there was a historic incident on November 29, 1864, which came to be known as the Sand Creek Massacre. When gold was discovered in the Rocky Mountains in 1858, white migration spread westward across Cheyenne and Arapaho lands. Seven hundred blue-clad soldiers of the Colorado Territory militia attacked and destroyed a native village at Sand Creek, Colorado. 133 native men, women and children were killed.
Buffy Sainte-Marie lends her Womanvoice to depict the massacre in gentle terms. Infused in her lyrics is native spirituality which is shared by many North American First Nations peoples.
