I Am A Man: Chief Standing Bear's Journey for Justice, Joe Starita.
The Ponca tribe of Chief Standing Bear was forced away from its Nebraska homeland and marched 600 miles to Indian Territory. This is the tale of Standing Bear's quest to return the body of his only son to the Poncas' burial ground. Standing Bear's long journey and his landmark legal case that followed raise questions about whether constitutional rights, tribal-based societies, and American democracy can co-exist in harmony.
