We found this magnificent statue and immediately fell in love with it. It is an excellent statue and a fine memorial to one of the great native leaders.

This statue is a poignant reminder of the early history of many places in Canada and particularly Alberta. It tells a bit about Sitting Eagle aka John Hunter and early Calgary

My office overlooks Sitting Eagle. He is a boon to my productivity and he looks especially majestic in the winter with skiff of snow on his shoulders. His patience and resolve can be a lesson to us all.

Sitting Eagle stands 11 feet tall on a polished stone pedestal while he appears to scan the horizon, one arm raised to shield his eyes, outside Encor Place, a 29-story downtown skyscraper on 7th Avenue SW. The setting is perhaps less paradoxical than it seems....More

This statue is situated outside a major oil companies' office high-rise here in the city of Calgary. I find it a sad moment of the history of Canadian first people.
