Near theMissouri River in South Dakota

At the Chamberlain Rest Area we found the Dignity sculpture. This 50 foot sculpture of a Native American woman is depicted wearing a traditional star quilt. The 128 stainless steel blue diamond shapes were designed to flutter in the wind, but were not moving when we arrived. The quilt represents respect, honor and admiration in Native American culture.

I love the fact that even her leggings are decorated as most formal wear among Native Americans.51865E6E-C826-4DEE-A1A1-361BB02BAC2A9897A2CC-55EB-4C69-A06F-4DDD043354C6
