The End of the Trail 

 

Created as a tribute to the American Indian by James Earle Fraser (1876-1953) when only 17.  His twice life-sized plaster replica

gained world fame at the 1915 San Francisco Exposition.  Clarence Shaler, Waupin industrialist, commissioned this first bronze

casting.  Dedication was June 23, 1929.  Chief John Big Tree, Fraser's model, was the honored guest at Wapun's 125th Jubilee

July 1-4, 1964.
