The Allegawaho Heritage Memorial Park, venue of the annual Kaw Nation Washunga Days Powwow, is located 3 miles from Council Grove, Kansas. The Kanza Monument is a 35 foot limestone tower that was erected by Council Grove citizens in 1925 (on the land that would become the park) as a tribute to the memory of the Kanza’s presence in the Council Grove area. It was prompted by the discovery of Native American remains exposed by erosion in a nearby stream bed.

On April 20, 2002, the Kaw Nation dedicated Allegawaho Heritage Memorial Park – 168 acres of their native homeland that includes the Monument and one of the three Kaw villages that were occupied from the 1840s to 1872. Stone ruins remain from three of the 138 huts the United States government built as dwellings for the Kanzas in 1862. The Kanzas chose not to live in these structures, using them as stables for their horses instead. After the Kanzas were forced to move to Oklahoma in 1872, settlers lived in these structures until they had built homes. Then the huts served as outbuildings for their farms.

A two mile long Kanza Heritage Trail loops through the Kaw Heritage Park and connects to the Flint Hills Nature Trail. Long term plans include construction of a visitor center and reconstruction of a bark lodge representing traditional Kanza dwellings.
