The Osage were a dominant Indian tribe in what is today the center of America. They have been described as both the most treacherous and war like of all tribes, as well as the most peace-loving and hospitable. While they may have loved peace the tribe was frequently at war with other tribes. The men were known for shaving their bodies with the exception of a small patch of hair on the top of their heads. They considered anyone who didn’t do this, including the bearded French and Americans, to be quite uncivilized. They were also the tallest race of indians with an average height of over 6 feet, with many reaching 7. Because of this they referred to white settlers as “the short people”. While the Osage had their own religion which shaped their lifestyle, they were one of the quickest tribes to convert to Christianity. Their culture on the other hand, still exists to this day.

The Osage nation now resides in Northern Oklahoma, with their capital in Pawhuska. Fortunately the Osage were some of the most competent and stubborn negotiators, and so retained land rights and sovereignty. These land rights proved critical as oil was found in the new Osage land, leading to the nation becoming one of the richest and most prosperous tribes in modern day.


Chief Pawhuska, or ‘White-Hair’, lived from 1763 to 1809. He became chief of his band in 1791. While the Osage never had centralized leadership, Pawhuska was considered the most prominent chief of the Osage. The name ‘White Hair’ originates from a battle against the against the Americans in Ohio. During the battle Pawhuska defeated the American commander and attempted to cut off his scalp. Instead the powdered wig of the commander was torn off and he escaped. Pawhuska was impressed with how the wig protected it’s wearer and wore it for the rest of his reign. Pawhuska’s major achievements included successful wars against surrounding Indians and Americans, improving trade and relations with the French, and guiding the Osage through dissension at a time where American’s strategy was to turn native tribes against themselves. Today the Osage capital is Pawhuska, Oklahoma, named after their most respected chief.
