Mapping the Wyandot Migration Trail at Kansas City, Kansas Public Library

To honor the history of the Wyandot tribe, the Kansas City, Kansas Public Library has shared their migration story on an interactive map. The first documented contact with the tribe was in 1535, in present-day Montreal. This map shows the major points of history from that event onward, highlighting the places the Wyandot tribe moved to make a home. Subsequently, they were forced to move multiple times, leaving members of their family, history, and culture behind.

It is our hope that by honoring the history of the migration of the Wyandot people, it will help educate others about the past of our home, allowing us all to better understand and value what brought us to our present. This story map is our pursuit to provide you with insight into the history and culture of an underrepresented indigenous people of America.
