Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas
The goals of the Kickapoo Land Office (KLO) are to purchase lands for the beneficial use of the Kickapoo Tribe; to gather and maintain land records in an orderly and accessible system; to provide technical assistance to land owners and to develop geographic information and mapping that is available and serviceable for all tribal programs to improve delivery of services.
The objectives of the Kickapoo Land Office (KLO) are to purchase lands within the Kickapoo Reservation and to aggressively pursue trust status for tribal fee lands and to initiate action to acquire lands for the Plum Creek Reservoir. The Plum Creek Reservoir is a major project which will solve water issues for the Kickapoo Tribe for many years to come. The benefits of having an ample water supply are many and impact reservation development and improvement.
The philosophy of the Land Office is based on an anonymous Indian proverb:
“TREAT THE EARTH WELL: IT WAS NOT GIVEN TO YOU BY YOUR PARENTS, IT WAS LOANED TO YOU BY YOUR CHILDREN. WE DO NOT INHERIT THE EARTH FROM OUR ANCESTORS - WE BORROW IT FROM OUR CHILDREN.”
