Description

The annual Kiowa Black Leggings Warrior Society Ceremonial, held on the grounds of Indian City USA in Anadarko, honors those who are currently serving or have served in the military.  This American Indian event includes ceremonial dance festivities that cover two days, traditional dancing, a presentation of colors and the singing of a war mother's song.  The Kiowa Black Leggings Warrior Society, known as the Ton-Kon-Gah, was established many generations ago to honor veterans.  This historic event dates back to over 200 years ago.

There are multiple theories as to how the Kiowa Black Leggings received their name.  Some conclude that it was the dust from trails that caused their legs to turn black, while others say their legs became blackened while running back into battle after an enemy force blackened the surrounding area with fire to repel an attack.  The name Black Leggings stuck and the society became one of the best horse-mounted forces on the plains.
