Keeper of the Plains, Sunset, Wichita, Kansas. The Keeper of the Plains in Wichita, Kansas was created in 1974 and placed at the confluence of the Arkansas and Little Arkansas Rivers. The 44', 5 ton stylized sculpture of an Indian Chief was designed by Native American artist Blackbear Bosin. I met Mr. Bosin when I worked at Acme Lithographers in Wichita, Kansas.

Did you know the name "Kansas" is a Siouan Indian word? It comes from the tribal name Kansa, which means "south wind people." The Kansa Indians were not the only native people of this region.
