The Midwest Connection

Kansas - Oklahoma - Texas - Missouri - Mississippi
Osage - Choctaw - Cherokee - Kiowa - Kickapoo

The Midwest has many connections to the Southwest and Four Corners.
El Quartelejo, in Scott County, KS, is the furthest North-Eastern pueblo in the U.S.
The Kiowa and Navajo are both of the Athabascan language groups;
The Hopi claim that they built the Mississippi Mounds;
Missouri was a staging point for the expansion through
Kansas down to Indian Territory (Oklahoma).
Then came the Cherokee Strip Run.
