Eagle sculpture dedicated
4 September 2008

Eagle Schulpture dedication

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: Student artists from United Tribes who feverishly hammered and welded through the summer to complete a metal sculpture of an eagle were hailed with public recognition and congratulations during a September 4 dedication program in their honor. Art-Art Marketing students stood before their creation, "The Keeper," in a receiving line during an honor song: Charles Anderson, New Hope, MN; Tina Curley (Fort Peck Tribe) Wolf Point, MT, designer of the sculpture; Stacey Grant (Omaha Tribe of Nebraska) Lincoln, NE; Brenna Ashburn (Standing Rock Tribe) Harwood, ND; E. J. Red Bear (Cheyenne River Tribe) Eagle Butte, SD; Kristina Kalenze (Spirit Lake Tribe) Bismarck, ND; and Freedom McLaughlin (Standing Rock Tribe) Bismarck, ND. Student Dustin Thompson (Standing Rock Tribe) Bismarck, ND, was not present because he had been redeployed to his military unit. Their work became the fifth art piece created in the last five years in a cooperative project with the Bismarck Parks and Recreation District. The sculpture stands at the south end of Bismarck's Sertoma Park near the tennis courts. At far right with blanket, is sculptor Tom Neary, a teacher and advisor on the project.
