The forced migration of native tribes from the eastern United States and upper Midwest to eastern Kansas following passage of the Indian Removal Act of 1830 will be discussed tonight on a "River City Weekly" encore.

Dan Wildcat, professor of American Indian Studies at Haskell Indian Nations University; Dale Nimz, historian; and Randy Thies, archeologist, talk about the impact the concentration of new native peoples had on the American Indians of eastern Kansas as well as the repercussions from growing contact with European American travelers and squatters.
