In addition we recognize, support and advocate for the sovereignty of the tribes who currently reside in Kansas: the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, the Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas, the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, and the Sac and Fox Nation of Missouri in Kansas and Nebraska, as well as members of the Delaware Tribe, and the Quapaw, and Wyandot Nation of Kansas.
