This reconstruction of the house of Chief James Whitecloud, built on the original site in 1984 on his allotment, is an example of the early types of frame house built during the allotment period. It was the site of the last traditional bark house on the reservation. Rodeos and powwows have been held here since at least the 1920s; you can see the powwow grounds beyond the house in the back. It served for a few years as a museum, and will be an interpretive site to help tell the story of how Ioway people lived during the Allotment Period, from 1887-1940.
