An early photograph of the Kaw Mission at Council Grove, Kansas. Thirty Kaw boys lived and attended school at the mission from 1851 to 1854. The Kaw (or Kansa) gave the state of Kansas its name. The Kaw tribe lived along the Santa Fe Trail for less than thirty years before the U.S. government removed them to Indian Territory (now Oklahoma).
