As the nation pushed west, Indian tribes were removed from their lands. Between 1825 and 1850, 25 tribes were relocated to Kansas. Two tiny strips of land in extreme northeast Kansas were set aside for the Iowa and the Sac & Fox. Relocation meant learning to survive in an environment with different natural resources.

[Marker image caption reads] Black Hawk led a band of Sac & Fox warriors in the Black Hawk War against settlers in Illinois and Wisconsin. He died in Iowa prior to the Sac & Fox relocation to Kansas.
