The Osage Chapter NSDAR was organized on February 26, 1898. The name "Osage" was chosen
to honor the Native American tribe which once lived in the area of Missouri where Sedalia is located.
The Osage were a very proud and powerful tribe admired for their fierce warriors and excellent hunters. The men were noted as
being very tall, six feet and over. The Osage lived in semipermanent villages and had distinctive pottery and stone tool
technology. Osage women excelled in the raising of corn, beans, and pumpkins. They also butchered and prepared the meat
after a hunt, and tanned the hides. Today the Osage Nation is mainly located in Osage County, Oklahoma, its headquarters
in the town of Pawhuska.
Osage Chapter NSDAR meetings are usually held on the third Saturday of September through June at 1:00 p.m.
Meetings include a program of patriotic, educational, or historical interest.
We have had interesting programs in the past on topics such as: "Teaching in Other Countries"; "Women in Service"; "Quilts of Yesteryear";
"Those Lovely Green Herbs"; "The Liberty Bell"; "Children's Classic Books"; and "Sedalia at Its Best."
