In this humble van resides a family with a cause.
Robin Bair, along with his wife and children, is on a spiritual walk on the 700 mile Ponca Trail of Tears in an effort to raise awareness of the horrendous drug and alcohol problem on the reservations.
Bair hopes to spread his message and unite the Ponca people to stand and fight against the substance abuse.
He also is celebrating his ancestors and conducting ceremonies to remember those who were lost in 1877 when the Ponca Tribe was forced to leave their home in Niobrara and travel by foot to Oklahoma.
He expresses his gratitude to the city of Neligh for caring for the grave of White Buffalo Girl.
The fight against methamphetamine is very real for this spiritual family.
They hope to unite their people and heal their nation’s wounds. With hundreds of miles to go and an undying faith, they walk forward. Singing the song of the Ponca.
