We found this tribute to the Plains Indians on the map. We were staying overnight in Wichita so we were able to visit just before sunset and stay for the lighting of the Ring of Fire.
The Statue stands at the confluence of the Arkansas and Little Arkansas rivers near downtown Wichita, Kansas.
There are pedestrian bridges that cross both the Arkansas and Little Arkansas rivers that lead to the statue.
Down river from the Keeper of the Plains is downtown Wichita.
As the sun started to set we got ready to witness the Ring of Fire display. The lighting time will vary depending on the time of year.
The winter night that we visited they lit the ring at 7:00PM. Not only were the flames beautiful to watch, they were nice and warm on a cool winter’s night.
The next morning we went back to get some pictures of the displays honoring the Plains Indians. There are several different displays located behind the statue and between the two bridges.
This is really a beautiful place to visit and learn more about the Plains Indians.
