Seal of Kansas


Flag of Kansas

Kansas (i /'kænz?s/) is a U.S. state located in the Midwestern United States. It is named after the Kansas River which flows through it, which in turn was named after the Kansa tribe, which inhabited the area. The tribe's name (natively kka:ze) is often said to mean "people of the wind" or "people of the south wind," although this was probably not the term's original meaning. Residents of Kansas are called "Kansans."

Heritage for the Blind is a non-profit organization serving the blind and visually impaired in Kansas. Our mission is to provide the tools necessary to help the blind and visually impaired in Kansas independently explore and participate fully in society.
