The Prairie Band Potawatomi Indian Reservation is an Indian reservation for the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation located in Jackson County, Kansas. The Potawatomi used to be located in the Great Lakes area, but were forced to move west due to Europeans settling their land.[1] The reservation encompasses all of Lincoln Township, plus parts of Banner Township, Franklin Township, and Grant Township.
