Otoe-Missouria Tribe

Resources - Maps

Map #1 - Otoes & Missouria land in Iowa, Kansas, and Nebraska.

Map #2 - The Otoes and Missourias before 1854 held their lands by Indian title. In that year they received land on the Big Blue River by treaty title. Because of pressure from white settlers, between 1830 and 1881 the Otoes and Missourias were convinced to give up more and more of their land to the U.S. government. With each treaty, their reservation got smaller.

Map #3 - In about 1800, the Otoes and Missourias lived in Nebraska between the Great Nemaha River and the Platt River. In 1816, Auguste Chouteau prepared "Notes" about where certain tribes lived.
