On October 22, 2022, the Osage Sesquicentennial Celebration convened the great 𐓷𐓘𐓻𐓘𐓻𐓟 𐓩𐓣𐓤𐓘𐓯𐓣 together to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the Osage Reservation established in 1872. The event celebrated Osage resilience and major accomplishments that have sustained us as a Nation on this land. The gathering included 𐓷𐓘𐓻𐓘𐓻𐓟 traditions and cultural ways that foster unity and respect for one another in order to empower our children to shape a bright future.
The event was held on the Osage Nation campus in Pawhuska, Oklahoma.
The day was dedicated to all those we have lost that paved a path to a brighter future for us and future generations. Our strength and resilience comes from the commitment of our Wahzhazhe people and the knowledge that the Wahzhazhe Nation is blessed by Wa-Kon-Da.
This film captures the day and will be secured in a time capsule. Future generations should know that we pray for them, as our ancestors prayed for us.
