Lucy Tayiah Eads was born in 1888 in a tipi on the banks of Little Beaver Creek in Indian Territory (now Oklahoma).   She was the adopted daughter of Chief Wah-Shun-Gah who served as principal chief of the Kanza from 1885 to 1908. Lucy attended Haskell Indian School from 1901 to 1908. In 1922 Lucy was elected Chief of the Kaw tribe – the first woman Chief of the Kaw. She served until 1934.

Pauline Sharp is a citizen of Kaw Nation and past vice-president of the Kaw Nation Cultural Committee. She has also served on the Board of Trustees of the Mid-American All-Indian Center in Wichita, Ks. Sharp has researched and studied the history and culture of the Kanza People, from whom the State of Kansas took its name. She tells the story of the Kanza (Kaw) people through the character of her grandmother, Lucy Tayiah Eads. Sharp is a juried member of the Kansas Alliance of Professional Historical Performers and lives in Wichita, Kansas with her husband, Doug Sharp. Pauline is a 1968 graduate of Valley Center High School.
