Bill D BS: Trump Actions and Effects (785* d) RE: BS: Trump Actions and Effects 18 Jan 21

Don... the 'Kaw' was a shortened form of the Kanza .. there were many tribes whose names were muddled by early historians.

In Kansas, I knew several members of various tribes. The most notable was Blackbear Bosin who was also a photographer and showed me some things..he designed The_Keeper of the Plains, which I watched being constructed.
But in Lawrence, I worked with several Kickapoo, like Don Wenenis and Virgil Shoptese, who were forklift operators at a Stokely-Van Camp warehouse, and a couple of the nicest guys you'd ever want to know.

...and Wichita itself was named for one tribe.
