Native American Heritage Museum

Native American Heritage Museum

Share in the journey of the Great Lakes Indian tribes who were forced to emigrate to Kansas in the 1800s, adapting their traditional Woodlands cultures to the rolling prairie landscape. At the Museum, once a Presbyterian Mission built in 1845 to educate Iowa and Sac and Fox children, you will find quillwork, baskets and other artwork of present day descendants of emigrant tribes. Through the interactive exhibits, Native Americans tell stories in their own words.

We hope you enjoy our work.
