Introduction by Leo Oliva, History Professor, Fort Hays State University

Hear about the colonial and federal policy that shaped the livelihood of Native Americans and learn about the culture that survives today.

Karin Kaufman Wall, Mennonite Central Committee, and Pauline Sharp (Kaw) present "Loss of Turtle Island," a participatory program that examines the decimation of the Native American population in the 19th century.

Freddy Gipp (Kiowa Apache) leads Native American dancers and singers in a contemporary narrative performance.

This event is part of "Kansas Indians: Walking Paths of Yesterday and Today," a public discussion series examining the social and cultural traditions of Native American tribes in Kansas. Support for this project is provided by the Mariah Fund.
