It explores how the US dominant cultural interests managed such a tragic and unflattering narrative while maintaining a cohesive national identity in the face of such action. It investigates the collective memory and memorialization, in terms of the experience and cultural identity of the Cheyenne and Arapaho people, as well analyzes and interprets how a memorial can contribute to long term peace and reconciliation interests.
