The Indian

Just south of Junction City, Ks on a hill over looking the Smoky Hill River is a statute with a plaque that reads “The Indian”.



Built in 1920, the statute is trying to survive the elements, but the vandals have certainly taken their toll on it.

    As sad as the damage and wear is, it somehow adds a little “something” to the statue: perhaps it hints of the unfortunate circumstances faced by native Americans over the years. I read a little about it, and found mention in one article of the Quivera Indians. I never knew where the name of Lake Quivera in Kansas City came from — now I do.

      It certainly does parallel the treatment of Native Americans. I didn’t see anywhere where there are any plans to try and refurbish it. I only hope that it doesn’t suffer anymore vandalism.
      We weren’t able to be there very long as it became so smoky from all the pasture burning.
