Sacred places in Kansas

This sacred rock in Lawrence was once located along the banks of the Kaw River at the mouth of Shunganunga Creek. The Kaw people used the 10-foot tall red rock with religious ceremonies. In 1929, the rock was moved to Robinson Park near Lawrence's City Hall to honor the town's founders.
