Wachiska Audubon Society has been partnering with the Otoe-Missouria Tribe. The Tribe is currently located in Oklahoma, but historically was located in eastern Nebraska. They were relocated from the Yutan, Nebraska area to near Barneston, Nebraska, and eventually to Red Rock, Oklahoma by the US government in 1881. Most of Wachiska's prairies, as well as theCity of Lincoln, were one time held by them. The City of Lincoln, the University of Nebraska and others, including Wachiska are working on a project to welcome them back to Southeast Nebraska and increase the public's awarness and the history of the Tribe. Wachiska has opened its prairies in Southeast Nebraska to the Tribe for ceremonies and plant gatherings (medicinal and ceremonial uses).

By welcoming the Otoe-Missouri Tribe back to Nebraska, we are connecting the Tribe with their ancestoral lands, but also introducing Nebraskans to the original inhabitants of our prairies. September 21 has been designated as Otoe-Missouria Day in Lincoln and Wachiska supports and participates in all the associated events each year.

The Tribe, like Wachiska, strive to educate the public about the importance of the eastern tall-grass prairies of Nebraska and their importance to man and all wildlife.
