Unknown - 2014
Rate this:
For centuries, the Ioway people lived on land that is now part of Missouri and Iowa. But settlers started moving into the area and wanted land for themselves. Great Walker, an Ioway leader, reluctantly agreed to sign a treaty giving up their traditional homeland. Many of the Ioway moved to an area set aside for them in Missouri, but Great Walker and his band refused to go along. They settled along the Chariton River and carried on with the customs and culture that had helped them survive for hundreds of years, even when it meant defending themselves against those new American settlers. This book is included in the nonfiction book series, Notable Missourians, for young readers in grades 4 to 6 about people who contributed to Missouri's history or culture and who were born or lived in Missouri.
