This last-named plaque is the one mounted on the boulder,
researched by Dick Murphy and others (forgive me as I do not know
their names), and a project which was supported by the tribal
government, under Leon Campbell at the time. I was one of many there
for the dedication, which was a moving experience, on a windy, sunny
day during powwow time. This recognition by those ancestors by tribal
members and the tribal government should be applauded and should
as an example of what can happen when differences are put aside to
honor our ancestors and culture.
