Omaha Indian Culture and History

As a complement to our Omaha language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Omaha tribe and their society. Please note that Omahas and other American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Omaha history is interesting and important, but the Omaha Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and the life and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
