  • Afraid Of Our Shadows
      What began as an innocent desire to save antique family
      photographs and history became a nightmare of intimidation,
      gossip, and fear as to the contents and material written
      about numerous branches of the the author's gigantic family.
      Any one person in these thousands of descendants could and
      did feel a fear of what they dreaded might be a shadow like
      history. Those who opposed the publishing the most were the
      proudest of the book, published on the web.



  • Forever Frugal & Yeast Muffins
      There was a steady fire in the little cook stove,
      where upon set a tin of yeast muffins.
      (Story includes an actual recipe!)

  • Hens and Honey
      "You Got Some Hens, Honey?"
      Some tongue twisters are worth remembering.

  • The Red Dishes
      "Gramma's red dishes?" Collateral?
      I can't believe it," the sister was unbelieving!

  • Standing Bear Park
      "There was a time when a Ponca man and a Sioux man met,
      one would not walk away." How the Standing Bear Park
      project is meeting this challenge to work toward unity.

Many of this writer's storylines
are based on memories of the once
beautiful and productive
ranchsite of my ancestors.
My dream is to see it renovated
and historically restored.

Lizzie
-Ponca Pioneer Woman-


A story of
Meka-Thee-Ing-Gay,
(Little Bright Moon)

Elizabeth "Lizzie" LittleCook,
born 1884, died 1963,
daughter of
Oo-Hah-Shingah
Samuel LittleCook
and
Esther (BrokenJaw) LittleCook.

Lizzie was what would probably
be known as an anomaly
during her time.
She stepped from one
set of circumstances,
as to an ingrained set of
rules with her Native American
culture, into becoming
successful in a totally
different culture, that of the
pioneering Anglo society.
She became a court reporter,
a notary public, an interpreter,
and a law office secretary.

Lizzie was educated at the
Chilocco Indian School,
and late in her life
shared her life story with
a Chilocco Indian School
student of journalism,
her granddaughter,
Donna Jones-Flood,
author of "Lizzie."

The publication includes
a photo of Lizzie.
