Funds sought for huge Indian monument in Tulsa


Funds are still being sought for a 21-story bronze monument of an Indian warrior in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The 207-foot-tall monument, known as "The American," will cost $23.5 million. It will be created by Osage artist Shan Gray. It would be the largest freestanding sculpture, according to Wikipedia [Entry].

According to an economic impact study prepared by Relations Inc., the statue would bring in about $36.5 million in revenue to the Tulsa area.

In addition to the $23.5 million monument, funds are sought for a $6.5 million visitor center.
