“Pay Homage to the Thunderbird!”

In Keelboat Park on the banks of the Missouri River stands a large, 4 headed sculpture that represents the four archetypal Thunderbird myths from four geographic regions of the United States.  Built by students at the United Tribes Technical College, this impressive monument is well worth the visit. Measuring 15 feet high and around 30 feet across, the sculpture depicts four giant Thunderbirds, with heads and talons thrust forward, emerging from a thundercloud.

This was pretty cool. The descriptions detailing the different styles and legends of the Thunderbird were super interesting. Unfortunately, it looks like some locals defaced part of the sculpture as two talons were torn off. But it was still impressive.

GPS will be off. Located right next to River and near several parks. Great walking trails and nice stop if traveling with pets. Plenty of history and reading plus play areas for kids. Perfect location for picnic or quick lunch to take in the scenery.
