Arkansas Post National Memorial O-Gah-Pah Youth Summer Program
The Arkansas Post National Memorial is located 100 miles southeast of Little Rock, Arkansas and 140
southwest of Memphis, Tennessee.
Originally the site of the Quapaw village of Osotouy, the Post was established in 1686 by Henri de Tonti
as the first semi-permanent French settlement in the lower Mississippi River Valley.
Now, as part of the National Park Service, the Post serves as home to many natural ecosystems, as well
as an educational experience for many cultures and an abundance of history.
In an effort to educate Quapaw Tribal youth about tribal history, culture, and nature, the Post is hosting a
summer program from June 6, 2016-July 1, 2016.
The program will consist of 6 Quapaw Tribal youth between the ages of 15 and 18, and one chaperone,
who is also a Quapaw Tribal Member.
