La Crosse /  The Big Indian

Description

7½ m high statue of concrete.

Annotation

It was created by to commemorate all the Native Americans that met where the three rivers Mississippi, Black and La Crosse meet. In more recent years it has often been called "Hiawatha", but that name was not used by Zimmerhakl and the poetic name has nothing to do with La Crosse.
