Talk Planned On Excavated Indian Village

KSAL StaffSeptember 3, 2013

A presentation in Salina on a recently excavated Kanza Indian village is planned this week.

Tricia Waggoner, the Kansas State Historical Society’s highway archaeologist, will discuss the history of the Fool Chief’s Village from 1830 to 1844. The site near Topeka had to be excavated because of a pending road project.

The free talk begins at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Smoky Hill Museum in Salina.

In the early 1800s, the Kanza claimed a territory that covered roughly two-fifths of what is now Kansas. But as European settlements claimed more and more land around Council Grove in the mid-19th century, the Kaw Nation was forced into what is now Oklahoma.
