Indianola is a city in Red Willow County, Nebraska, United States. The population was 642 at the 2000 census. On 27 March 2004, a fire that started in the town's only grocery store destroyed the store and the city offices. In its early days, Indianola was the county seat of Red Willow County.

Located in the City Park of Indianola is the grave of a Pawnee Indian woman who died of wounds received at the battle between the Sioux and Pawnee tribes at Massacre Canyon just east of Trenton, Nebraska. Originally she was buried northwest of town on a bluff overlooking Coon Creek. In the 1970s it became obvious that erosion would eventually destroy her gravesite and the citizens of Indianola financed the reburial of her remains in the City Park.
