This is a digital photo, shot in h.d.r. and rendered in black and white, of the Washita Massacre site (Washita Battlefield according to the National Park Service) in western Oklahoma, U.S.. Occurring in late November 1868, it was carried out on Black Kettle’s unsuspecting village of Cheyenne Indians by George Armstrong Custer and the U.S. 7th Cavalry 8 years before The Little Bighorn. Black Kettle, the peace chief who survived the horrific Sand Creek Massacre 4 years earlier, did not survive this one. His unmarked grave is somewhere onsite, known only to his people.
