Osage Indians were, and many still are, among the tallest indigenous people. They were noted by the French traders as being around Seven feet tall! They were fierce warriors and feared by other tribes. Many women are tall also. My Aunt was 5'10. I know a young man who is 6'9 or so here in Oklahoma, Osage reservation.

I'm 1/8 Osage and we get pretty tall. at full height we average at about 6ft6in rare for us to be full height and less than 6ft. guess im lucky though lol. btw all the men on that side of the family are atleast 6'5"
