The Osage Tribal Museum takes pride in delivering the most current and quality information for our people, and for everyone interested in our history. When a child is able to take its first step, that is the only first "first step" that child will take, and many parents want to preserve that memory forever on film, tape, or proudly preserve it in their mind. Our museum took that "first step" back in 1938, by being the first tribally-owned museum in the United States, and we are very proud of that! We are fortunate to have a 14-minute documentary from that opening of the museum, including the parade. (The tape starts out saying it's May 8, 1938, which it is actually May 2, 1938.)
Our goal is always to inform, teach and, especially, learn from our yesterdays, by documentation and of oral histories by those who were there to tell it, and have the children pass it on to the next generations both today and tomorrow!
