Debra ZimmermanWow! Didn't hear anything about this celebration! Nothing on the news about it and I watch it daily. To bad that it was n't advertised better or was this a private celebration?

Pam TeKolste CasselThe laser show was so cool! Especially when the "blanket" of lights rolled above our heads. I loved all of the Nebraska historical events that were depicted in lazer lights on the tower of the state capital.

Vicki Clarence HuberI agree wirh the advertising comments. I only knew about it ahead of time because I work for the State. It was in an email telling us we couldn't park in our parking lot that day. I believe I heard it once on B107.3 radio the day of the event.

Sloane Cornelius"The Homestead Act -Opening up the west"? Does anyone know HOW this happened? I'm really really tired of Nebraska continuously white washing the brutally violent truth of the Homestead Act and erasing native people from its history. From the capital to the Homestead monument, erasing native people and acting like people didn't already live here (and acting like these people weren't forcibly removed with extreme violence) is a violation, is traumatizing, and is a continuation of colonial violence. It creates a false master narrative that celebrates indigenous genocide and makes people feel good and safe about illegally settling stolen native land. At some point there has to be accountability for this history and this violence and it can't be solved by pretending to care about native people by celebrating them or one random native person one day a year, if that actually ever happens at all.
