    Tribe hopes new trail will shine light on story of Ponca and Chief Standing Bear

    The story of Chief Standing Bear detoured through an Omaha courtroom more than 130 years ago. It started when the U.S. government uprooted the peaceful Ponca Tribe and forced it to move to Indian Territory.
    Nine Ponca perished during the 1877 exodus across eastern Nebraska and Kansas. More than 100 others died of hunger and disease in their new homeland in present-day Oklahoma.
