Kickapoo Nation Reservation (Kiikaapoaki)


category : Indian Reservations
The Kickapoo Nation Reservation is the second largest Indian reservation in the State of Kansas, covering an area of 6,570 acres in Brown County, 5 miles west of Horton, within 45 miles of the Nebraska and Missouri state lines. This reservation is far removed from most major reservations in the U.S. It was created by the Treaty of Castor Hill in 1831. The Kickapoo Tribe has prospered during the years and operates many beneficial programs for the Kickapoo Nation Reservation.

Each year, the Kickapoo Tribe hosts their Annual Pow-Wow during the last weekend of August. This is a time for gathering of family and friends to laugh, dance, sing and eat together. There will be many dancers from all nations, artisan crafts displays and traditional foods. This is a time of celebration of life and culture. The Kickapoo People are distinct with their own traditions, their own history and their own culture. Time may pass, but their ways continue to exist during changing times.
