Risė Supernaw Proctor is known as a historian of Quapaw ancestry and for the last 35 years, she has been researching family histories for every tribal member on the 1890 roll.

 She conducted interviews with pertinent members of the families like Bob Whitebird, Odestine McWatters and her own grandmother, Mary Maude Supernaw. Other interviews with Mary Maude Supernaw were conducted and recorded by Bill Supernaw, Kugee Supernaw, and Charles Supernaw. Risė transcribed all taped interviews and used this information to help establish Quapaw family kinships.

 She maintains a library consisting of Quapaw research documents, annuity rolls, census rolls, family trees, heirship rolls, funeral home documents, etc. along with documents obtained from the archives, libraries, and museums throughout many states.
