Preserving History – Mary Corndropper

The following article was published in The Daily Sentinel Tribune on Feb. 26, 1900.

In partnership with Veronica Redding, Osage, Oklahoma Historical Society Registrar, the Osage News is partnering to share the rich history of the Osage Reservation during the early 1900s through news articles. This is a continuing series.

The following article was published in The Daily Sentinel Tribune on Feb. 26, 1900.

WARNING: This article is inaccurate and may upset some readers. This article is a snapshot of the racism, prejudice and misinformation Osages had to endure in the early 1900s. This article is riddled with misinformation about Osage wedding practices. A good source for information on Osage weddings can be found in the book, “Wedding Clothes and the Osage Community: A Giving Heritage,” by Daniel Swan and Jim Cooley.
