Pieces of their past have been sitting in a window in Towanda for four years. This week, members of the Wichita tribe will pick them up and take them home. The artifacts include a five-foot replica of a grass lodge, the sort of structure that the Wichita lived in along the banks of the Little Arkansas and Arkansas rivers in the mid-1800s.
