Washburn University Center For Kansas Studies presents a 2022 Kansas Day Event: A Trail of Tears in Kansas? An Indigenous Perspective of Kansas History.

Presenting: Dr. Sarah Deer, University Distinguished Professor - University of Kansas, Chief Justice for the Prairie Island Indian Community Court of Appeals.

Most people associate the "trail of tears" with the removal of Southeastern tribal nations to Indian Territory in the 1830s. In truth, however, most tribal nations experienced upheaval and displacement across the continent. This presentation will consider the 19th century forced removal of tribal nations to and from the land now known as Kansas.
