Went to the visitor center on June 21, 2018. All statues are up and just the waterfall and landscaping around it need to be finished. The staff at the visitors center were very nice and helpful. Watch not to get hotel signs in background in pictures.

The elder daughter of the Osage family has appeared, along with a wolf pulling the sledge. Eventually there will be a father, mother, and baby added. Expectations are that the finished monument will be 35 feet tall.

A steel sculpture at the Cuba Visitors Center celebrates the history and legacy of the Osage Nation. It is the only known monument to the Osage Nation in the state of Missouri.

The current sculpture, of a Missouri red wolf pulling a sledge, is just the smallest part of what is planned to be a 35-foot-tall statue group of an Osage family traveling west.
