American Indian Experiences Weekend

August 15th ∎ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Screening of the award-winning documentary “Lost
Nation: The Ioway 2.” Introduction by the
filmmakers and Q&A and discussion with them after
the viewing!
When the Ioway were forcibly removed from their
ancestral homelands to a reservation bordering KS
and NE, Ioway leader White Cloud (the Younger)
believed the move would ensure survival for his
people. But broken treaties, land loss, the end of
communal living, and attempts to diminish their
unique language and culture led to the
establishment of a second Ioway Tribe and their own
"trail of tears."
August 16th ∎ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Kelly and Tammy Rundle will open the day with
a discussion about their film “The Ioway 2.”
Historian Greg Olson, author of “The Ioway in
Missouri” will speak on the Platte Purchase.
Tribal Elder Pete Fee, Lance Foster, and Nathaniel
and Duane Scates from the Ioway Reservation near
White Cloud, Kansas— where the Ioways were
moved after the 1836 Platte Purchase—
(and featured in the film) will display and describe
American Indian regalia, demonstrate drumming,
and discuss Native American culture.
Joyce Big Soldier of the Iowa of Oklahoma— the
former “Woodland” tribe— will talk about her gentle
people, their plight and their connection with nature.

    So sorry, All, for not being in touch with questions. This was my first time... I'm learning. The events are at the McCoy Meetin' House at Park University. I don't know how to imbed a map, but if you enter at the main entrance, it is the first building on the left-- on top of the hill. There will be signs. Call me at[masked] if you get lost or need more info! There will be cookies, iced tea and coffee on Friday, and energy bars and fruit on Saturday. You may want to bring a lunch if you want to be at all of the offerings on Saturday. It will be a bit difficult to get in and out of the University at lunchtime because of the "Parkville Days" events at English Landing Park. (But you may want to take advantage of your parking spot at the campus... and then wander over to the park. It is beautiful! You can walk along the river for several miles!

    2nd Request.

    Several others have asked similar questions.

    _____

    Hi Mary Beth,

    What is the name of the building at Park College that the film will be shown?

    Do you have a Google Maps / MapQuest friendly address for that building?

    Sounds like a great event.

    Thank you in advance for your kind attention to these questions.

    _____

    Park University is a big place.

    They have several buildings.

    I am sure that more folks would consider going, if they knew exactly where the event will be held.

    I am not trying to be mean.

    I am just trying to get a location on a big campus.

    Thank you again.
