Watering Indian

[Stephen Francia, 04/30/2020]

Marie Barbera created the dripping Indian fountain in 2002. It captures the moment when a pre-Columbian Indian knelt at the Miami River and decided that this would be a good place to live. Indians eventually built the second largest conical mound in eastern North America here.
