Four Arrows Monument

Field review by the editors.

Belcourt, North Dakota

Erected in 1985 for the town's centennial. Four giant arrow shafts rise from 2-D arrowheads (they look as if they were made of cardboard, spray-painted gray) lodged tip-first in the rock cairn that forms its base. The arrows symmetrically surround the base of a life-size crucifixion cross. To further add to the confusion, the rock cairn has a blackened cattle skull nailed to it.

On an adjoining side of the cairn is this inscription: "We wish to honor our ancestors, who gave witness of 100 years of their Catholic faith and their Indian traditions. They are the ones who speak today."

Okay, so giant Indian warriors shot at Jesus, missed, and instead set a cow on fire. Got it.
