The story of the meeting of these two cultures in Council Grove is told in a graphic and three-dimensional form at the Kaw Mission State Historic Site.. Here in the early 1850s, Methodists attempted to educate Kaw boys as a means of folding the Indians into the Euro-American culture. 

The Kaw Mission story reflects the universal themes of two cultures in historical collision, the lethal impact of this collision on the native peoples, and the modern re-integration of the Kaws and their stories into the tribe's ancestral home near Council Grove.
