After they were expelled from their homelands in Nebraska and Northern Kansas, the Pawnee traveled to Indian Territory in Oklahoma, carrying prized ancestral seeds. The multi-colored kernels of corn represented history and heritage, food and family, culture and community. Today, tribal members and Nebraska farmers are planting the tiny bits of history back into native soils. This is one of the new stories featured in the May 18 episode of the Nebraska Public Media series “Nebraska Stories.”
