Program Description

Unconquerable: Kickapoo of Central Illinois

The Kickapoo, a fiercely independent people, inhabited this stretch of Central Illinois when the first Euro-American settlers arrived in the early 1820s.

Join Bill Kemp as he explores who exactly the Kickapoo were. This talk will include rare 1906 photographs of Kickapoo living in Brown County, Kansas. These photographs were commissioned by Milo Custer, an early curator of the McLean County Historical Society.
