The WHITE HAIR MEMORIAL is dedicated to the history and future
of the Osage Indians. The White Hair Memorial is tucked away
in a secluded grassy area one half-mile off Highway 20 between
Hominy and Fairfax. With special arrangements, an Indian Feast
and presentation on Osage culture by Osage elders are available.
Preserving the culture of the Osage tribe was the intent
of Mrs. Lillie Morrel Burkhart, the first woman to be nominated
to the Osage Tribal Council and a descendant of Chief Pawhuska,
who bequeathed her estate to the Oklahoma State Historical
Society more than 30 years ago.
The memorial is housed in Mrs. Burkhart's beautiful and well-maintained
home and is equipped with the latest technology for preserving
and presenting information on the Osage People.
Ribbonwork and other cultural items are on display.
Hours: By appointment, Tues thru Fri &
