All American Indian Center, Wichita
The All American Indian Center in Wichita is a great cultural resource for all Americans. The large building is used for indoor events, dances, etc and houses a museum and gift shop. Tuesdays mark lunches of Indian Tacos for Wichitans. During several occasions, the grounds of the Indian Center are full of Native Americans at the Pow-wows. Great culture, not just for the tourists and a proud people show the world their lifestyles both past and present. In the rear of the property, at the confluence of the Big Arkansas and Little Arkansas Rivers stands a wonderful monument to the Native American people designed by Blackbear Bosin--who was a favorite local artist. It is particularly beautiful at sunset and this was captured by my wife, Linda.
