Community Gathers for Memorial Ceremony after Deadly Shootings at Sol Tribe in Denver

Hundreds of people gathered Saturday afternoon in front of Sol Tribe Tattoo on 1st and Broadway in Denver, site of the murder of Alicia Cardenas and Alyssa Gunn-Maldonado on December 27th. The space was the start of a series of murderous attacks that ended in Lakewood. Five people died at the hands of a man who alluded to the murders in writing beforehand in a series of self-published books.

The community gathered to participate in an Indigenous ceremony to heal people suffering from grief. Dance, singing, drumming, and burnt offerings set the stage for a procession around the block, led by children of the community. KGNU’s Dave Ashton was there and he shares this audio.
