Omaha is located in the Midwestern United States on the Missouri River, about 10 miles (15 km) north of the mouth of the Platte River.
The Omaha-Council Bluffs-Fremont, Nebraska-IA Combined Statistical Area is 931,667, according to the U. Omaha's pioneer period began in 1854, when the city was founded by speculators from neighboring Council Bluffs, Iowa. When a woman's son lives near her brother, he is able to more easily learn how he needs to behave in the matrilineal role he has inherited. This pattern generally occurs when a man obtains his status, his job role, or his privileges from their nearest elder matrilineal male relative.This relationship can be formal or informal, depending on the society. According to the Kazakh common law, the avunculate nephews could take anything from the relatives of the mother up to three times.Early anthropological research focused on the association between the avunculate and matrilineal descent, while later research has expanded to consider the avunculate in general society. In the Kyrgyz past a nephew, at a feast at his maternal uncle or grandfather, could take any horse from their herd or any delicacy.In the Southwest United States, the Apache tribe practices a form of this, where the uncle is responsible for teaching the children social values and proper behavior while inheritance and ancestry is reckoned through the mother's family alone.Modern day influences have somewhat but not completely erased this tradition.These are the kinds of things our middle schoolers need to be learning about, and I think the kids liked the fact that the whole presentation was not just about bullying. Word/Play brings together prints, photographs, and artist books dating from the 1960s through 2014, complemented by a selection of major paintings.The city was founded along the Missouri River, and a crossing called Lone Tree Ferry earned the city its nickname, the "Gateway to the West".Omaha introduced this new West to the world in 1898, when it played host to the World's Fair, dubbed the Trans-Mississippi Exposition.
