Frank Keating talked about and read to children from his book, The Trial of Standing Bear (Oklahoma Heritage Association; September 22, 2008). A Politics and Prose Bookstore employee showed illustrations from the book during the reading. The book is about the arrest of Chief Standing Bear as he attempted to return his tribe to their lands in Nebraska, after they were relocated to Oklahoma. At trial, Chief Standing Bear argued that Native Americans deserve the same rights as white Americans, paving the way for an extension of rights to all. Mr. Keating responded to questions from the children following his remarks.

Former Oklahoma Governor reads to children from his book “The Trial of Standing Bear.”
