A prairie in the American West crossed by railways, a lonely tipi and the rough vastness, thought collection at the historic location. In the city: a memorial dedicated to the pioneer's spirit, the monumental stone architecture of a government building, a demonstration of young Indigenous people, signs bearing names of Indigenous groups. In 1864, U.S. cavalry troops perpetrated a massacre in which at least 200 members of the Cheyenne were killed. Elleni Sclavenitis‘ film montages images testifying to a contested history: an unmarked location and lived praxis in explicit memorials and the implicit evocation of history by urban architects. Against that on the vocal level individual voices and oral tradition from a kin of one of the massacre's victims.
