It has been a reflective, busy, and productive past few weeks out here in Gravel…
Myself and members of the Kaw Nation Tribal Council appreciated the time your team took to come meet with us concerning the rebranding of the UNBOUND race.
As was stated, in recent months the voice of the people concerning the name of the race has been a topic of discussion, especially among our elders. We respectfully asked that the name be changed to dissolve the connection to our people, the Kanza.
We appreciate your thoughtfulness and consideration as we all move forward to enhance our understanding of each other, our history and our future.
Kaw Nation Chairwoman
