The Mid-America All Indian Center


category : Museums
The Mid-America All Indian Center The Mid-America All-Indian Center preserves the heritage of the American Indian tribes of North America and is located at the confluence of the Big and Little Arkansas Rivers, on land where the Wichita tribe camped more than 100 years ago.

The only center of its kind in Kansas, the museum showcases changing exhibitions of traditional arts and crafts, plus contemporary artwork. Visit the Gallery of Nations Hall, a display of tribal flags, and learn about different Native American Nations. Explore the Indian Artists' Walk of Fame, a series of gardens dedicated to renowned Native American artists.

Walk the paths of the Plains Indian Encampment, listen to the sounds of the big and little Arkansas Rivers flowing to either side and the prairie wind rustling through the trees overhead. Catch a glimpse of what village life was like for the people who first lived in this area ... the Plains Indians.
