Located in each direction from Council Grove, these statues pay
tribute to pioneers, cowboys, and members of the Kaw Indian tribe.
To the east is a group of Kaws riding across the Flint Hills;
south is a cowboy roping a steer; west is a Kaw shooting an arrow
at a fleeing buffalo and north is the "Prairie
Traveler," an ox-drawn wagon and mounted traveler.
