“Large Native American statue”

Large Native American statue in a welcoming pose, greets travelers to the "Heart of Indian Country." A kachina (/kəˈtʃiːnə/; also katchina, katcina, or katsina; Hopi: katsina /kətˈsiːnə/, plural katsinim /kətˈsiːnɨm/) is a spirit being in western Pueblo cosmology and religious practices.[1] The western Pueblo, Native American cultures located in the southwestern United States, include Hopi, Zuni, Tewa Village (on the Hopi Reservation), Acoma Pueblo, and Laguna Pueblo. The kachina religion has spread to more eastern Pueblos, e.g., from Laguna to Isleta. The term also refers to the kachina dancers, masked members of the tribe who dress up as kachinas for religious ceremonies, and kachina dolls, wooden figures representing kachinas which are given as gifts to children.

I'm not even sure why this is on here. It's located outside a section 8 park. It's a welcome sign to the park. There's also a new sign behind it so you can't get a clear shot of it. Disappointment.

I'm not sure why old reviews say it is small, it isn't worth it, or that it is a welcome sign- all 3 are wrong! It is HUGE see my picture where I couldn't even upload the full statue in this picture AND get me standing next to it, it is GIGANTIC and I had no problem taking a picture with it! Such a cool photo opp stop that is directly off 40 (historic route 66)!

Artful symbol visible from US 40. Not as tall as expected. Gives you something to look for without stopping unless you want a picture.
