The Keeper of the Plains sculpture, which has become an informal symbol of the city of Wichita, Kansas. The 44-foot tall steel sculpture, created by Wichitan and Native American artist Blackbear Bosin in 1974 in anticipation of the American Bicentennial, stands at the point where the Big and Little Arkansas rivers meet in downtown Wichita. This land, considered sacred ground to the Native American people of the area, is also home to the Mid-America All-Indian Museum. Photo by Carol Highsmith, 2021.
