Group seeks to raise awareness of genocide by creating symbolic mass grave

A group called One Million Bones is hosting genocide awareness events across the country Saturday, including in Cheyenne.

Amanda King, a UW student who’s helping out with the program, says people will gather and create a symbolic mass grave, with fake bones, to represent victims of genocide.

“As the symbolic grave is laid in front of us, we’ll discuss contemporary cases of genocide, and we’ll educate the participants who are there on conflicts that are currently happening today,” King said.
