As far as protests go you could say the people in this one are quite grounded. Members of the Cowboy and Indian Alliance and their supporters converged at a farm in Nebraska. Their plan, to plant sacred Ponka red corn seeds along the proposed route of the Keystone XL pipeline.
“Our family is honored to have sacred Ponca corn seed planted here on our farm,” said Art Tanderup, whose farm is crossed by the historic Ponca Trail of Tears. “The people of Neligh, in 1877, assisted the Ponca by burying White Buffalo Girl who died on the Ponca Trail of Tears. Over one hundred years later, that spirit of humanity continues as we join with our friends and neighbors in replenishing their sacred corn and fighting against Keystone XL.”
Approximately four acres of the seed have been planted.
