Kaw Mission tells the story about the place where 30 Kaw boys lived and attended school from 1851 to 1854. The Kaw (or Kansa) gave Kansas its name. They lived here along the Santa Fe Trail for less than 30 years before the US government removed them to Indian Territory (now Oklahoma). Learn more about these people and the Santa Fe Trail. Stops 303-306 are located on the Kaw Mission Historic Site grounds.
