Presentation at Ponca Nebraska State Park
This was a lot of fun, they had some good questions and seemed to be really interested. I hope that it leads to further dialog with the small town called Ponca Nebraska. The reporter cracks me up by saying I have a hypnotic voice. I wished that more of the students would have shown up. They wrote such a good book about Standing Bear and his court case. They are now in the 8th grade, they wrote it as a 2nd grade project. I really wanted to create an atmosphere of understanding mainly because their chosen mascot is the Indians. If you are going to call yourself the Ponca Indians you should know about the people you are referring too. That is just my opinion.
