PONCA CITY — As the breeze off Lake Ponca made the empty shawl’s purple fringe flutter in the breeze, Sarah Blueback Tillman struggled to keep the tears at bay and her voice steady.

Speaking before dozens Thursday afternoon at the sixth annual Six Nations Domestic Violence Walk, Tillman, a citizen of the Ponca Tribe and coordinator for  the Tonkawa Tribe’s Substance Abuse and Suicide Prevention program, took to the podium during a chair ceremony, to read a poem her mother wrote in honor of a young domestic violence casualty from their community.

“Remember my name,” she read, the words catching in her throat. “Remember my name.”
