The promised annuity—to be paid in goods and services—was often late in arriving or found its way into the pockets of unscrupulous government officials and merchants.
The Kaw were indifferent to the pleas of government agents and missionaries that they take up farming as their sole livelihood.
Meanwhile, the Kaw faced smallpox epidemics in — and —, which killed about Important in the latter group were 23 mixed bloods, the sons and daughters of French traders who had taken Kaw wives.
The French influence among the Kaw is still seen today in common surnames such as Pappan, Bellmard, and Chouteau. A disastrous flood in destroyed most of the land the Kaw had planted and left the tribe destitute.
It was a favorite stopping place for the rough-hewn teamsters and traders and voracious merchants on the Santa Fe Trail.
The first Kaw arriving there were beaten up by traders. Whites invaded Indian lands and sporadic efforts by soldiers to force them off the reservation were ineffective.
With the coming of the American Civil War in , the Kaw and other Indians in Kansas suddenly became an asset as the state recruited them as soldiers and scouts to stave off invasions by slave-holding tribes and Confederate supporters in Indian Territory.
They served in Indian Territory Oklahoma and Arkansas during the war and 21 of them never came home—a large loss to the already diminished numbers of the tribe.
However, amidst the gloom of a tribe that seemed likely to disintegrate came one colorful moment. The Kaw and the Cheyenne had long been enemies.
On June 1, , about one hundred Cheyenne warriors descended on the Kaw reservation. Terrified white settlers took refuge in Council Grove.
The Kaw men painted their faces, donned their finery, and sallied forth on horseback to meet the Cheyenne.
The two Indian armies put on a military pageant featuring horsemanship, fearsome howls and curses, and volleys of bullets and arrows.
After four hours, the Cheyenne retired with a few stolen horses and a peace offering of coffee and sugar by the Council Grove merchants.
Nobody was hurt on either side. During the battle, the mixed-blood Kaw interpreter, Joseph James, Jr. Curtis would later become a jockey, a lawyer, a politician, and Vice President of the United States under Herbert Hoover.
White pressure finally forced the Kaw out of Kansas. On June 4, , they packed up their meager possessions in wagons and headed south to Indian Territory to a new reservation.
Two weeks later, men, women, and children arrived at the junction of the Arkansas River and Beaver Creek in what would become Kay County, Oklahoma.
They preserved the buffalo meat by jerking it and sold the buffalo robes for five thousand dollars. The Kaw continued their decline in Oklahoma.
In , their agent reported that nearly half of their number had died of contagious diseases in the previous seven years.
In the s and s, the Kaw derived much of their income from leasing their land to white ranchers for grazing.
In , to manage grazing leases, they elected a government with a Chief Councilor and a representative from each of the four Kaw bands: the Picayune, Koholo, Rock Creek, and Half-breed.
Washungah was elected as the Chief Councilor in and the tribal headquarters was later named Washunga to honor him.
The Kaws found security from white harassment on their Indian Territory lands, but the tribe continued to decline, especially the full bloods.
By they numbered only persons and the Kaws seemed on the road to extinction. By , only one old woman in the tribe could not speak English and more than 80 percent were literate.
The Curtis act of expanded the powers of the federal government over Indian affairs. The author of the act was Charles Curtis, now a Congressman.
Curtis believed that the Indians should be assimilated and he supported the break-up of tribal governments and the allotment of tribal lands to their members.
In , at Curtis's urging, Congress abolished the Kaw tribal government and reservation and divided tribal lands among members.
Each of Kaw tribal members received acres 1. Curtis and his son and two daughters thus received 1, acres 6. By , only 13 percent of the land of the former Kaw Reservation was owned by Kaws.
After the death of Washunga in , the Kaw people had no formal organization for many years. In , Washunga's adopted daughter Lucy Tayiah Eads Little Deer was elected principal chief along with a council of eight members, and was the first and only female chief, but in the government agency to the Kaw was abolished and the buildings sold.
In , the tribe purchased lands on their pre reservation near Council Grove, Kansas to create a park commemorating their history in Kansas named the Allegawaho Memorial Heritage Park.

Louis: Missouri Historical Society, , Reddy, Marlita A. Vol XV, No. The treaty required the sale of the 2 million-acre reservation to the government for just over 10 cents an acre.
The consequent Kaw treaty of allowed the tribe to keep only 80, acres of the poorest land, to be subdivided into acre plots for each family which was wholly insufficient to support one Kaw family.
By the late s the government was obliged to authorize emergency funds to prevent outright starvation of the Kaw people.
Finally, in a federal act was passed providing for the removal of the Kaws from Kansas to present-day northern Kay County, Oklahoma, which was carved out of former Osage land.
Today Kaw Nation is again a proud and prosperous Nation. Although it is a separate language, it is closely related to the languages of the Osage, Ponca, Omaha, and Quapaw tribes.
Kanza is a Siouan language, and so it also has similarities in grammar and vocabulary with Ioway, Otoe-Missouria, the languages of the Sioux peoples, as well as more distant ties to Crow, Mandan, Hidatsa, Biloxi, and others.
During a long and very devastating period in the history of the tribe, usage of the language began to taper off dramatically.
This trend continued on into the twentieth century, until only a handful of the fullboods in the s could speak the language fluently.
Today, all these elders are gone. The Kanza people today speak English as a first language, but many can still understand and use Kanza words and phrases.
The Kaw Nation is interested both in preserving the language and more importantly in reviving it. The Kanza Language Project is a special department of the tribal operation devoted to this task.
