Site: Standing Bear Lake
Event Details: This event is in honor of the 140th anniversary of Chief Standing Bear's landmark trial in Omaha. This trial decided for the first time that Native Americans were declared persons in the eyes of the law. It could be stated that this legal decision was birth of the civil rights movement in our country and it all happened here in Omaha!
