1. Piominko Marker
Inscription.  This statue is a representation of Piominko, who served as a Chickasaw leader from approximately 1783-1799. Prior to being our Piominko, his name is believed to have been Tushatohoa. Piominko led the Chickasaws during a pivotal time in our history, protecting our sovereignty through warfare and diplomacy. By signing the Treaty of Hopewell in 1786, Piominko cemented the tribe's alliance with the United States. Piominko established a personal relationship on behalf of the Chickasaws with President George Washington and received the George Washington Peace Medal for his military service and loyalty to the young United States.

We dedicate this statue to recognize Piominko and the many Chickasaw veterans and warriors who have served our tribe and country with honor.
 
Erected 2014 by Seminole artist and sculptor Enoch Kelly Haney and Bill Anoatubby, Governor The Chickasaw Nation.
