Ponca Remembrance Walk

April 29, 2017 - May 11, 2017

The Ponca Remembrance Walk will closely retrace a portion of the route of the Ponca Tribe’s forced removal from its homelands in the 1870s. There are plans to stop in several cities along the 285-mile journey, and communities along the route will have the chance to hear stories and learn information about the tribe from its members.
There will be a ceremon on April 29 in Niobrara to begin the walk, and Tribal Elders will be asked to take the first steps. At the final stop in Barneston, there will be a deed signing ceremony for the tribe to receive ownership of a 19.5-mile segment of the Chief Standing Bear Trail from the Nebraska Trails Foundation and the Homestead Conservation and Trails Association.
