Omaha World Herald: State apologizes to Ponca Tribe
"State officials took the cigarettes from Ponca Smoke Signals, a tribally owned shop, after discovering that employees had failed to affix its packages with a state tax stamp.

Ewald said state officials falsely believed the tribe was subject to Nebraska's tax-stamp laws because it occupies federal trust land, and not a reservation. He said a closer review revealed that tribal trust land enjoys the same protections from the state."
