Man’s heart away from nature becomes hard.”  – Standing Bear

A little about Standing Bear. He was a Ponca Indian in Nebraska in the 1800’s. He was party to a landmark court case where it was judged that Indians were indeed people and US citizens and entitled to the same rights as others. Contrary to the governments argument that they were neither a person or a citizen. Unbelievable and incredibly sad.

I was creating a flower gallery and ran across some of these pics – not previously published. Probably a few more will trickle out in the next few days.
