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 serve as an example of what can happen when differences are put aside to honor our ancestors and culture.
