  • Sacred Nebraska Indian site protected from development

    Pat Leading Fox stood on the bluff overlooking the Platte River.

    “It’s a pretty nice view. I feel like I belong here. It feels like being at home,” said Leading Fox, head chief of the Nashara Council of the Pawnee Nation.

    On Sept. 26, Leading Fox and three other Pawnee who traveled from Oklahoma witnessed the dedication of 257 acres of land to permanent preservation. The land, owned by Pat and Nancy Shanahan, includes the sacred Pawnee ground known as Pahaku or Pahuk Hill, situated on a high bluff along the river south of Fremont.
