Seated Native American Statue

A giant statue of a Native American with a headdress sits at the northwest corner of Main Street and 800 E. in Roosevelt. He is seated in front of a nail salon, but the building previously housed the Moqui Indian Trading Post.

[Alan Culley, 02/02/2016]

The Indian (Chief Moqui?) was built out of cement by Darrell Gardner in the early 1970s. The Trading Post went out of business in 2008, but a local group rallied to save the statue.
