People of the Munsee Tribe in Kansas have started a cultural preservation project and series of events to protect archival materials and educate residents of Douglas, Franklin, Leavenworth, and Wyandotte counties about the history of their tribe in those areas.


Mike Ford, director of the “Niiloona Munsiiw: We Are Munsee” project, will speak on “The Munsee Tribe in Kansas: Gnadenhutten to the Chippewa Hills,” according to information from the Watkins Museum of History.

The preservation project is sponsored by a grant from Humanities Kansas.

The event is set for 7 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 28 at the Watkins, 1047 Massachusetts St., as part of Final Fridays.

Those who can’t attend in person may view a livestream of this event on the Watkins Museum’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
