Osage Culture Traveling Trunk

The Historic Preservation Office, with the assistance of the Traditional Cultural Advisors (TCA) Committee, consulted with professors and graduate students at Missouri State University to create a one-of-a-kind traveling trunk to educate the people of Missouri about the Osage Nation.

Osage Cultural Traveling Trunk

The Osage Culture Traveling Trunk contains Osage Nation-approved materials about the our history, language, and culture. This includes hands-on education materials appropriate for elementary through high school students and for any adults willing to learn. The main goal of the trunk is to foster cross-cultural understanding throughout ancestral Osage territory in Missouri.

The Osage Culture Traveling Trunk is a living project, which means the Osage Nation Historic Preservation Office and Missouri State University staff will continue to contribute and expand the trunk as it reaches wider audiences. Many thanks to the diligent students and staff of Missouri State University and our other partners who made the trunk a reality. ​Funding for the Osage Culture Traveling Trunk was received from Missouri State University, the Osage Nation, the History Museum on the Square, and ​the Missouri Humanities Council with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
