These recordings of Lore are of the Ponca
tribe, as to my clan. This is my tribe and is the way I was raised. My
mother and her mother before her were knowledgeable about their culture.
Since grandmother was of the He-Sah-Dah, rain band, these things I know
go to that clan. Other clans will have their own ways. These I do
not know, which is okay, because they may not know our ways either. Time
and unforeseen circumstances befall us all.
I would like to invite any of the Ponca
Tribe specifically to use this form if you have any comments to make
such as where I might be missing information, have made an error on some
point or indeed if you would like to see any additional information
added. Do also feel free to contribute information that you may
have yourself and I can add this for you. At the end of the day it would
be good if we can ensure quality information is available for future
generations to learn from.
