Kansas is a state located
in the Midwestern United States.It is named after the Kansas River which flows through it, which in turn was
after the Kansa tribe, who inhabited the
area.The tribe's name
(natively kką: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."
