The Munsee Tribe in Kansas

Through a grant from Humanities Kansas, the Munsee Tribe in Kansas has embarked on “Niiloona Munsiiw: We Are Munsee,” a cultural preservation project and series of events that will protect archival materials and educate residents of Franklin, Douglas, Leavenworth, and Wyandotte Counties about the history of the tribe in those areas.

Project director Mike Ford spoke at the Watkins on “The Munsee Tribe in Kansas: Gnadenhutten to the Chippewa Hills.”
