Confluence of Nations Plaza


The open-air Education Pavilion at the Lewis and Clark Historic Park at Kaw Point has interpretive signs about the Lewis and Clark expedition as well as a plaque describing the events of 1804. This plaza is a focal point in the 10-acre park, surrounded by the Confluence of Nations outdoor amphitheater.

Flags from 19 regional Native tribes are represented here, including the Wyandot, Wea-and-Pianshaw, Shawnee, Seneca, Sac-and-Fox, Quapaw, Potawatomie, Peoria, Ottowa, Otoe-Missouria, Osage, Miami, Kick-a-poo, Kaskaskia, Kansa, Iowa, Delaware, Chippewa, Cherokee.


Donor bricks are used to pave the Education Pavilion Plaza. Donations to the donor brick program allow anyone to contribute to this legacy project that will be enjoyed by generations. The bricks on the Confluence of Nations Plaza have been donated by individuals and corporations helping to make Kaw Point Park a valued natural setting in the otherwise industrial center of Kansas City. Help continue to support and expand the park by purchasing a brick engraved with your name, your company's name, or in memory of a loved one.
