Territorial Tribes: A look at the changes that were brought to native tribes living in Kansas after Congress passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act in 1854. Many Native Americans found their land “squatted” on by white settlers, while others fell victim to local authorities who defied federal law. Noble Images: Sunflower Journeys visits the cultural center at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence. At the center, visitors learn about the difficulties endured by students during Haskell’s early years. A special photo exhibit presents images of Native Americans as they appeared at the end of the 19th Century. Indian Mascots: Delve into the controversy over Indian mascots in Kansas schools. Sunflower Journeys visits Hiawatha High School to learn what led members of that community to change their mascot from the Redskins to the Redhawks
