Located on the historic Rogler Ranch just north of Matfield Green, the Pioneer Bluffs Center for Flint Hills Ranching Heritage invites ranchers, locals, schools, and visitors seeking a Flint Hills experience to come along with us as we journey through time to explore our history, and join us as we examine contemporary ranching issues.
Women of the Ranch
The audience size for Women of the Ranch will be limited to 75! Reservations for this Prairie Talk are required, and accepted first-come. Masks will be required inside the barn. To make this important project available to all, it will be recorded and later shared on the Pioneer Bluffs website.
Farm and ranch women typically play many roles. They are some combination of daughter, wife, mother, business partner, driver, drover, and cowhand all rolled into one. And a woman who began filling these roles in the first part of the 20th century has witnessed extraordinary change. It is likely that she has hauled water to bathe her children, cooked over a wood stove, and spent time behind a team of horses.
At 2:00 p.m. Saturday, September 18, Mark Feiden and Farrell Hoy will share highlights from interviews with farm/ranch women. A panel discussion with some of the interviewees will follow the film screening. This Prairie Talk will be held in the loft of the historic barn at Pioneer Bluffs near Matfield Green.
This is a free community event, funded by Humanities Kansas. Reservations should be made to Executive Director, Lynn Smith, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 620-753-3484. View our event calendar for more details.
