The Kanza Museum and Education Resource Center in Kaw City serves as an outlet to uncover a unique part of Oklahoma’s Native American history. The museum showcases tribal art and historical artifacts of the Kaw Nation, or the People of the Southwind, a tribe with just over 3,200 members.

Visitors to the museum can learn about the Kaw Nation’s language, culture, history, and tradition, through a wide variety of media including art. A layered metal statue of a horse and Kaw rider with his arms outstretched facing into the south wind sits out in front of the Kanza Museum that faces state Highway 11. The statue was commissioned by the South Wind Art and Cultural Foundation in 1999 and was made by Kansas artist Todd Whipple and has since become an important piece of art for the Kaw Nation.

The museum also houses other pieces of art dating back to the mid-1800s, some of which have been in families for generations. To learn about the Kaw Nation’s past, present, and future, visit the Kanza Museum in Kaw City.
