Ong-Gwe-Ohn-Weh - Dunkirk, NY

This statue was one of 70 created as tributes to Native Americans by Akron, Ohio artist Peter Toth. At one time there was one in each state and each providence. Six appear to be gone and three more are in storage. This one was created in 1973 and appears to be out year-round, but is heavily wrapped to protect it from the harsh Western New York winters.
