Details

This sculpture is intended for the nine foot monument to be installed at the Oklahoma State Park in Oklahoma City. The plan is to create a park lined with historical figures from Oklahoma's past. The first chosen to be sculpted was Te Ata, a Chickasaw/Choctaw woman who was an actress in the first half of the 20th century. She developed a play based on the life of her family and ancestors intertwined with Oklahoma history. The show was so popular she performed all over the world, often for kings and queens of many different countries. She became an honored ambassador of our country's culture, based on her oral tradition of storytelling.
