Inscription. Click to hear the inscription.  For over ten thousand years, Native Americans frequented the area of Brandenburg. The fact that they lived here at different periods is evidenced by the large amount of artifacts, burial grounds, and shell mounds along the riverfront. This area was desirable because of the river, abundant game, ground for planting corn, and especially, a high quality flint. This statue has been placed along the riverfront to serve as a reminder of our rich Native American heritage and the history of our land.
