Florence Schloneger and Pauline Sharp will share family stories related to land ownership, economics, education and identity, Sunday, Jan. 10 at 3 p.m. via Zoom and Facebook Live.

In 2018, Schloneger, North Newton, a retired Mennonite pastor, did something that no landowner in Kansas had apparently done before.

She gave something back to the Kanza people (also known as the Kaw Nation) after generations of broken and renegotiated treaties between them and the U.S. government.
