White Hair Memorial
The White Hair Memorial and Osage Learning Resource Center is an important and fascinating resource for anyone interested in Osage Indian history. Located less than a mile from Highway 20 between Hominy and Fairfax, The White Hair Memorial houses numerous Osage artifacts and documents as well as resources such as maps, annuity rolls, oral histories and photographs.
The building itself has a direct link to the rich Osage history. The 1920s-era home belonged to Lillie Morrell Burkhart, a descendant of Osage Chief Pawhuska (White Hair). In addition to the variety of artifacts and documents on display, there is an opportunity, upon request, to partake in a traditional feast and a presentation on Osage culture provided by elders in the Osage community. The White Hair Memorial provides an interesting look into an important part of Oklahoma history.
