Who-hoah! Pocahontas Statue

This fine lady is still there. The statue is surprisingly close to the road. So close in fact that you have to stand in the highway to take a picture.

[Bill Diesslin, 04/09/2008]

Fortunately there isn't much traffic on that highway. Pocahontas is fondly known to locals as "Poky."

Pocahontas Statue

Many years ago, there was a tee-pee next to this Pocahontas statue. Maybe it was an information booth or souvenir shop?

Pocahontas from Pocahontas, Iowa. We came across her on our way to a meeting in northern Iowa. She is posed to welcome the weary traveler into town.

Pocahontas statue

Pocahontas, IA, has a large concrete statue representing the famous Indian princess and namesake, at the east end of town, alongside the highway. It doesn't resemble either the real Pocahontas nor Disney's Pocahontas, but towns in Iowa are always trying to be famous for something, and this is "Pokie's" claim.
