Chief Lookout Memorial

5 miles East on Okesa Rd
Pawhuska, OK

Chief Fred Lookout came to Osage County, in what is now Oklahoma, 10 years after his birth.  He made the 150-mile journey on foot with his family in 1871.  After attending boarding school in Pawhuska, he graduated from Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania.  Upon his return to Oklahoma he married his wife Julia, the daughter of Chief Pawhuska.
He became principal Chief of the Osages in 1913, was re-elected in 1916 and again in 1924.  Chief Lookout worked tirelessly to ensure that the property interests and mineral rights of the Osage Tribe were retained.
Chief Lookout and his wife Julia are buried atop Lookout Mountain.  A granite stone marks their final resting place.
