This week on The Exchange, we remember Capt. Al Haynes, the pilot who saved more than 180 passengers aboard United Flight 232 30 years ago.  He died Sunday.

We catch up with Neligh, Nebraska farmer Art Tanderup and discuss the likelihood of the TC Energy Pipeline being built after a court ruling prevented a move that would have delayed the project.  Tanderup gave some of the land destined for the pipeline to the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska for the planting of their sacred corn.

"When you realize that it's two sides of the same structure then you start to understand it's more… about our depth", says Behrens. "…There's always another angle. And to see two angles at the same, it really helps solidify that multiple viewings, multiple encounters are required to really understand the complexity of any individual."

"The paintings that Howe did, especially in the 1960s, when being a truly contemporary Native American  artist was still a radical thing, you can see how his style his way of approaching his own heritage influenced then the next several generations of artists," says Behrens.
