Cutting Meat

Osages cut their own meat before traditional gatherings such as funerals, namings, dances, and other cultural events. While preparing the food it is important to pray and have good thoughts, this is a traditional value passed down from generation to generation. 

About the series: The Wahzhazhe Cultural Center and Osage Nation Language Department have collaboratively created a series of videos dedicated to sharing, preserving and celebrating the values, teachings and tribal ways of the Wahzhazhe people. Videos will be released weekly across Osage Nation communication platforms and, a website dedicated to Osage cultural education. Special thanks to the Osage language and culture team for making this series possible.
