Wah’Kon Tah: The Osage and The White Man’s Road by Mathews, John Joseph

Ex-lib 1932 University of Oklahoma Press

In Wah’Kon-Tah, John Joseph Mathews relied heavily on the papers of Osage agent Major Labian J. Miles to recreate the world of the Osage during the last quarter of the Nineteenth century and first quarter of the twentieth century. Using his own experiences, Mathews stressed the spirituality, dignity, and humor of the Osages as they acculturated to the non-Indian world and adapted some of its aspects for their own use.
