Chapter Two: 1832: Femme Osage/Dutzow

Virtual Event Aired: August 5th, 2020 

This time and these places represented a remarkable blending of new people and cultures. Native Americans had moved on and there were fewer fur traders on the river. Replacing them were Kentucky woodsmen following example of Daniel Boone and Germans who had come after reading the book published a few years earlier about the beauty of the area. 

North America’s only native parrot, the Carolina Parakeet was common along the Missouri River in the early 1800’s. It was a very colorful and noisy bird. We hope you will enjoy this week’s coloring activity and it will inspire you to research more about these now extinct birds.
