A Farm Family and a Gift to Two Tribes
Posted: Wednesday, January 8, 2020
In the third episode of Reconciliation Rising, we interview Art and Helen Tanderup and Larry Wright Jr., chairman of the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska, about the Tanderups' decision to donate 10 acres of their farm in northeast Nebraska to the Ponca tribes of Oklahoma and Nebraska. The donation will allow the tribes to continue to plant their sacred corn in Nebraska, and may also impede the progress of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline across the Tanderups' farm.
