Chief Standing Bear is the Ponca Indian chief who sued the federal government in the late 1800s to have Indians declared human. He won his lawsuit and slowly life changed for the native people of our country. However, before that happened, the Ponca Tribe was forced to move from their homelands in North Dakota to Indian Territory (Oklahoma) near the Salt Fork of the Arkansas River, south of Ponca City in the community of White Eagle.
