Loren Old Bear of Lodge Grass is proud to be a great-great-grandfather at 66 – the fifth of six living generations in his family – though planning for household gatherings can sometimes be difficult. “There are usually more than 100,” he said, “but we can only fit about 30.” Families spanning multiple...
