Named in honor of the Indian brave in Longfellow's poem, Song of Hiawatha, this northeast Kansas town is located near the reservations of the Kickapoo, Iowa and Sac & Fox tribes. Its main street, Oregon Street, was name for the nearby Oregon Trail.

Known for the hundreds of maple trees lining its city streets, it is most often visited by the curious who come to see the "unique" Davis Memorial located in the city cemetery.
