                         Dancers of the Plains                        

        Cultural Exhibition

          June 15-16, 2012

The 4th Annual Dancers of the Plains welcomed the Southern Ponca of Oklahoma and the Northern Ponca of Nebraska!

__________________________________________________________________

The Ponca tribe lived in what is now Nebraska until their forced removal to Oklahoma in 1877.

After Chief Standing Bear returned to bury his son in 1879, some of the tribe was allowed to stay in Nebraska after his famous appeal to the Supreme Court.  Today, the tribal members living in Nebraska are the Northern Ponca Tribe, and those in Oklahoma are the Southern Ponca.
