Event Details

Come learn more about the treaties of 1825, 1846, and 1859, which cumulatively dispossessed the Kanza (now present-day Kaw Nation) of 18,233,620 acres of land. Members of the K-State research team will share their experiences of working with primary documents and discuss how treaties in the Tallgrass prairies shaped this region. Co-sponsored by K-State Chapman Center for Rural Studies and Manhattan Public Library.
