How did the Kanza (Kaw) come to live in Kansas? Where did they begin and how did they make this region home? Even after migrating from the east, they continued a mobile lifestyle that included much of our present state. Join Dr. Lauren Ritterbush as she shares what we know about Indigenous migrations using archaeological evidence and early historical records relating to the Kanza. Dr. Ritterbush is an archaeologist, ethnohistorian, and professor of anthropology at Kansas State University in Manhattan.
