from Sand Creek

from Sand Creek is by Simon J. Ortiz. A masterful work of Native American poetry written as a tribute to the tragedy at Sand Creek where many Cheyennes and Arapahoes were massacred in 1864. Poignant and thought-provoking, this is a great introduction to Native American poetry.

Ratings: 8th grade - 9 out of 10.
