4-16-10 Keeper of the Plains

As I was a bit early in meeing a friend for dinner, I went looking for my post for today. This is the "Keeper of the Plains" that stands as the "confluence of the Big and Little Arkansas"(pronounced "ar-KANSAS" not "ar-KAN-saw") rivers. He stands "with his hands raised" to the Great Spirits, and as a tribute to the Native American Tribes who continue to gather at this sacred site. The rivers meet here and continue southeast towards the Mississippi River.
