A bronze bust of Ponca Chief Standing Bear, sculpted by artist Ted Long, has been dedicated and placed on display on the first floor of the Roman L. Hruska U.S. Courthouse in Omaha.

On the afternoon of September 16, the bust, donated to the Bar Foundation, was unveiled in a ceremony at the Roman L. Hruska U.S. Courthouse in Omaha. Judge Joe Bataillon presided over the ceremonies where there was a procession of judges in attendance. Representatives of Nebraska's Congressional delegation and several members of the Ponca Tribe were guests. Harley Upton, Ponca, opened the program with an honor song. Joe Starita, author of the Standing Bear biography, I Am a Man, addressed those gathered. Judge Cloyd Clark and Foundation President Kile Johnson did the honors of unveiling the bust before an audience of more than 100. Following the program, a reception was held in the Conference Room of the courthouse. The bust is on loan from the Foundation to the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska.
