Description

The name "Quapaw" is a derivative of the tribal term Ugakhpa, meaning "downstream people." It is believed the Quapaw were part of a larger group known as the Dhegiha Sioux that split into the tribes known today as the Quapaw, Osage, Ponca, Kansa and Omaha. Originally they all resided in the Ohio River downstream to the Mississippi River, eventually reaching what is now Arkansas.

In the mid 1600s, the French explorers Marquette and Joliet were traveling down the Mississippi using Illini Indians as their guides. The guides referred to the Quapaw tribe as "Akansea," which later became the word Arkansas. The downstream people settled where the Arkansas River met the Mississippi, organizing into four villages and this is where the Quapaw stayed until they were pushed out by Euro-Americans several hundred years later.
