A Conversation with Bill Haw
Filmed for the Pioneer Bluffs Center for Flint Hills Ranching Heritage.









In partnership with Pioneer Bluffs Center for Flinthills Ranching Heritage, we have been awarded a generous grant from the Trusler Foundation of Emporia, Kansas. This gift, in combination with support from the Wabaunsee County Historical Society and Museum, and the Volland Foundation, has funded 19 more interviews (27 interviewees) and two related events! Filming is complete and we are furiously editing.

The first of two screening events has been schuduled for April 14, 2024, at the Volland Store. A second, at Pioneer Bluffs, will be scheduled soon. At the conclusion of these two events, the films will be available here.
