Osage Removal in Missouri

Thursday, September 19, 2019

The removal of Native Americans east of the Mississippi River began in the 1700s. The Cherokee Trail of Tears is one such story, and, sadly, it is the only removal story that is widely recognized. Every tribe has its removal story - and these stories continue to unfold to this day. Professor Chris Otto of Jefferson College will present the story of the Osage Removal from Missouri and offer some insight into their life in Oklahoma.
