Read William W. Warren's 19th century book, for it will help you to learn of information the whites are covering up. Warren often wrote about the Sauk people. He named them the "O-sau-gee." It sounds similar to "O-sa-ki." However, hidden within the Anishinabe word "O-sau-gee" is the information we are searching for! Remove the "u" and the last "e" and we get Osage. The Osage originally lived in southern Michigan where the Swan Creek and Black River Chippewa's lived. The Osage are the Swan Creek and Black River Chippewa's! They are not of Dakota origins!
Osage people were already living in the Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma region in the 18th century. In the early 1830s (around 1833) they were joined by more Anishinabe people from Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Then in 1838-1839, 10,000s of Swan Creek and Black River Chippewa's followed prophecy and commenced an exodus towards the Kansas region. Once they reached their destination they settled down from Nebraska to Texas. They became civilized. In fact, togther with the Anishinabe people already living there and in Mexico, they became powerful enough to stop the whites from expanding west over land. The whites had to use ships to invade the west coast of California, Oregon, and Washington.
Osage Indian history is quite difficult to put together. In 1804, they learned that the United States used fraud when they signed a treaty. It helped to start the War of 1812, as did the 1808 Osage Treaty which was also fraudulent. Osage soldiers fought in the War of 1812, as well as the Texas War for Independance from Osage rule. For the next couple of decades a fragile peace existed. In 1854, the United States passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act. Anishinabe ogimak (leaders) knew what that meant. It took a few years before the United States fully carried out their invasion plans. In 1860, Lincoln was elected President and the Osage knew he was trouble.
Lincoln clearly told of how the Free and Slave State issue was his principle concern. He was really telling the Anishinabe Nation he intended to invade their land. Lincoln could care less for slavery and blacks! He only cared for land. The United States had already invaded the California, Oregon, and Washington region and the Great Plains were still under Anishinabe control. That is why the Civil War was fought! That is why the Anishinabe people killed Greedy Lincoln. After learning that Lincoln was elected President and then inaugurated, the Anishinabe Nation sent 10,000s of their soldiers from Mexico up to Montana, to the southeastern part of the United States. That region was easy to bring under Anishinabe control. Blacks made up a large % of that regions population. The north was far more difficult.
If Lincoln had wanted to live alongside Native American Nations, Anishinabe ogimak would not have continued the war. They would have kept the south as theirs. Lincoln had no intentions of living alongside Native American Nations however. Thus, he selected war. And it was a horrible one! And he paid for it! After the Civil War, the Osage people were forced to sign a treaty which ceded their land to the cheating whites. That occurred in 1866 when the Swan Creek and Black River Chippewa's of Kansas, agreed to relocate to Oklahoma. They were set aside a 1,470,058 acre Reservation. It took a few years for the Chippewa's to relocate to their Oklahoma Reservation. By 1870, most had made the move. And the cheating whites opened up the Reservation to white settlement but the Reservation is yet there. Over 13,000 Osage people are citizens of the Osage Reservation of Oklahoma.
