Bosque Redondo Memorial

June is celebrated as Treaty Month to commemorate the signature of the Treaty of 1868. On June 15th, Shawn Price (Diné) and the Dineh Tah’ Dancers will present a cultural program focusing on the treaty and the roles of General Sherman and Colonel Samuel F. Tappan as Peace Commissioners at the Bosque Redondo internment camp. The Dineh Tah’ Dancers will share several dances in recognition of the resilience of the Diné. Bosque Redondo Memorial will partner again this year with the Sherman House Museum/Fairfield County Heritage Association in Lancaster Ohio, who last year donated 100 yards of muslin cloth, to be gifted in one-yard pieces to the public, for a formal acknowledgment of Article XIII of the Treaty. The 2024 Treaty Day coincides with the local Fort Sumner commemorative event, Old Fort Days.
