Plans continue in the town of Satanta, Kansas for the celebration of their 100th anniversary.
Additional activities are planned for the annual Satanta Day celebration on May 12, which traditionally emphasizes the link to the Kiowa Indian chief Satanta. Prior to the 10:30 a.m. parade, the 2011 Chief Satanta and Princess (local high school students) will relinquish their reign to the 2012 Chief and Princess. In addition to the annual parade, barbecue and alumni activities, Native American reenactor Ken Weidner will have his tipi set up in the city park.
The tipi along Highway 56 will also be open with displays of arrowheads, artifacts and photos.
The changes and progress in 100 years of small town Satanta and that area of southwest Kansas are proving to be of interest to residents and former residents, as well as visitors to the area.
