  Miniature Guardian
by rexvaughan
 
 

Topping the new dome on the state capitol is a sculpture of a Native American, called "The Guardian." It was done by an excellent Native American artist, Enoch Kelly Haney who is of Seminole and Creek descent and whose family came to Oklahoma on the Trail of Tears. He is also a member of the Oklahoma legislature. It symbolizes the perseverance and steadfastness of the people of Oklahoma in guarding their heritage. Inside the capitol is this miniature which stands about 7 feet tall.
