Early peoples such as the Osage, the Kansa, the Missouria arrived at the confluence of the Kansas and Missouri in the 16th century. The Shawnee, Wyandot and Delaware and other peoples were relocated here in the early 19th century. All of them contribute mightily to the cultural mix we know as Mid-America. Dr. Bill Worley will share observations and stories about the ways in which these peoples affected the Kansas City region—then, and now. He will draw from a lifetime of study on the history of the region. Come see and hear how these native peoples made this land their own.
The Whole Story Lecture Series will examine Kansas City’s history through the lens of all the dynamic people groups that helped shape our city.
