The Ponca Tribe of Nebraska believes that by creating a Circle of Elders, much of the Ponca history that is being lost every day could be preserved for future generations. The Tribe and the Culture Department would like to have many Tribal Elders work together to share their knowledge and wisdom and provide input for ways to share this knowledge with current and future generations.

Gatherings are set up at each office site. Elders are invited to provide ways they can help educate other Tribal members, including youth.
