Osage Nation Museum: Launching Web Page for Allottee 2229 Digitization Project

The webpage invites Osage tribal members to contribute to the museum’s archive of photographs and biographies of Osage original allottees named in the Osage Allotment Act of June 28, 1906.

The Osage Nation Museum has launched a webpage for its Allottee 2229 Digitization Project.

The webpage launched April 2 and invites Osage tribal members to contribute to the museum’s archive of photographs and biographies of Osage original allottees named in the Osage Allotment Act of June 28, 1906.

The project builds on more than 900 photographs former museum director Kathryn Red Corn and her team collected during the early 2000s for her landmark exhibit titled “2229,” according to a release. The exhibition will be on view at the ONM throughout the year while the museum concurrently collects photographs and biographies from descendants.

Descendants may submit biographical information and up to five digital images of the Osage allottee for inclusion in the project, according to the release.

“Having a clear understanding of our relationships to the 1906 roll is not only a core part of our citizenship requirements, but also what we need to bring our practices of respect into the future,” said Jean Dennison, Ph.D., Associate Professor in American Indian Studies, University of Washington, and author of “Colonial Entanglement” and “Vital Relations.”

Dr. Dennison assisted Red Corn in the early stages of the project development. “These photographs thus not only tell us where we are coming from, but where we need to go.”
