Interesting that a woman in the UK should post a picture of a statue in Calgary, Alberta. I've never seen this statue, so I enlarged the second picture in order to read about John Hunter. Then I saw someone had placed a feather on it. Probably a pigeon feather, or a gull feather, but nice.
"I" think it's a great choice for "I" day.

I live amongst First Nations people and have even taught their children, but must admit I've never seen one in full regalia.

Wonderful statue - such a lot of native history around Calgary, - and all through the prairies for that matter.

Whoops! Where did that comment go?
As I was saying, it's a wonderful sculpture and the information is most interesting. He lived a good long life, too.

Beautiful statue and especially the granite encasing. What a very ordinary name for Sitting Eagle!
