Hilliars, pictured front row, left to right, is Waruje Nayi or Standing Eating, Munji Xanje or Big Bear, Hari Gra or Goes Far and Returns After He Found What He Was Looking For, pictured back row, left to right, is Ma Ska Gaxe or White Arrow Maker, and Chedo Navi or Standing Buffalo Bull. For centuries the Otoe had lived near the mouth of the Platte River in Nebraska, but by 1881 the Department of Indian Affairs had forced the tribe to sell their lands and move to the Indian Territory in what is now Noble and Pawnee counties, Oklahoma. According to tribal history, in October 1881, with their possessions loaded onto seventy wagons, the Otoe walked across the state of Kansas to their new home in northern Oklahoma, where they live today, image - 9 1/2" x 10 1/2".
