Kickapoo Culture and History

As a complement to our Kickapoo language information, we would like to share our collection of indexed links about the Kickapoo people and various aspects of their society. The emphasis of these pages is on American Indians as a living people with a present and future as well as a past. Kickapoo history is interesting and important, but the Kickapoo are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary artwork as well as archaeology exhibits, and the issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
