Inscription.  

"Standing at a crossroads, Dignity echoes the interaction of earth, sky, and people. She brings to light the beauty and promise of the indigenous peoples and cultures that still thrive on this land. My intent is to have the sculpture stand as an enduring symbol of our shared belief that all here are sacred and in a sacred place."

A gift to the people of South Dakota from
The Norm & Eunable McKie Family
