Blank commercially printed greeting card with a picture of an Osage Native American Church / Unknown

Curatorial Remarks

The Osage made wooden permanent church structures. They also sometimes used temporary structures such as a tipi. The altar in a permanent structure would have been made out of concrete. These structures were built by local carpenters that were hired. Some of these would have stained glass windows.
