Layton Hooper Indian Wars Symposium
Our annual Symposium takes place each spring in Denver, Colorado. Click the button below for details.
Our 2023 Assembly will be held in Dodge City, Kansas, Queen of the Cowtowns.
We've been around a time or two. Our previous assemblies have taken members to a variety of historical sites and featured a strong lineup of speakers.
The Order of the Indian Wars
Order of the Indian Wars is a "spiritual" descendant of an earlier group formed by actual veterans of the Indian Wars campaigns known as "The Order of Indian Wars of the United States." We have no official connection with the "Order of Indian Wars of the United States."
Anyone may join the Order of the Indian Wars
Our purposes are similar: In-depth study and dissemination of information on that aspect of United States military history of Indian warfare whether it is Indians against each other or with emigrant settlers and soldiers alike.
We have an interest in military history only. We are not a forum for political or sociological crusades.
We seek to understand and commemorate the history of the peoples and events in our past...on both sides.
We also seek to preserve and protect those important sites associated with the history of the Indian Wars in this country and to encourage individuals and groups to become involved in the preservation effort of their communities. Once these sites are gone they can never be regained.
