From the Wikipedia article on the subject.

The Sand Creek massacre has been featured in several movies, including Tomahawk (1951); The Guns of Fort Petticoat (1957); Soldier Blue (1970); Little Big Man (1970); Young Guns (1988); Last of the Dogmen (1995); and Steven Spielberg's mini-series Into the West.

The massacre has also been written about in literature, such as Centennial (1974) by James Michener; From Sand Creek (1981) by Simon Ortiz; James Bradley's Flyboys: A True Story of Courage (2003); and Lauren Small's Choke Creek (2009).

Songs about Sand Creek include Iron Maiden's "Run to the Hills" and Fabrizio De André's "Fiume Sand Creek" (Sand Creek River).
