Edmond’s African American History: Land Run to Integration

Online Exhibit

The topic of African Americans in Edmond is often questioned, mostly because of its absence. From the 1920s until the 1970s, no African Americans lived in Edmond.

Imprisoned but Empowered: Cheyenne Warrior Artists from Fort Marion

Sept. 13, 2024-Jan. 5, 2025

Following the Civil War, and with the introduction of the railroad, westward expansion increased significantly. So did the competition for resources. This created tension between Native Americans and European immigrants, which culminated with the Red River War in 1874. At the end of the war, the United States government ordered the arrest of 72 Cheyenne, Kiowa, Comanche, Caddo, and Arapaho warriors. Of these, 15 were Cheyenne. Taken from their families, these warriors were loaded onto trains and sent east. Nearly four weeks later, they arrived at Ft. Marion Florida. Their home for the next three year.

The Cheyenne were in an environment they barely understood. For nearly 100 years, this narrative was told and retold by historians and government agents. However, the Cheyenne have their own story to tell.  A story highlighting the journey east, as well as the life they left behind. A story told in art.
