Artist: Oreland C. Joe, Sr. - Title: Whirling Wind on the Plains

Throughout history, many tribes sat with government agency officials on sites near forts or open ground to talk of peace or bring about treaty issues. Many of those treaty sites were on the Smokey Hill River in Kansas. The non-treaty Cheyenne inhabited that area from 1825-1880. The Dog Soldiers of Tall Bull were always near and observed but never signed or put their mark down on a piece of paper. The sculpture indicates such an event. The esteemed Dog Soldier is listening to agency officials. As a leader, he is trying to stay neutral, represented by his left winged eagle fan. He is leader of children, women and older folks. Part of his decision is to protect the people. The other half is to be prepared to battle. His presence is calm for the time being. He also knows and feels the twist of false words in translation that favors the agency. He knows that many of their words and gestures swirl in the wind.
