The addition of cultural icons to the park's landscape preents an interesting abstract that is not lost on visitors who have found them unique and compelling. The Indian Hunter as we might expect has garnered the most controversy, but we shouldn't take this very compelling statue out of the context of the turn of the nineteenth century when the west was finally tamed enough for growth and development. There are two sides of this story, one one of peaceful pioneers who were attacked and savagely slaughtered by murderous tribes of warlike native Americans and in turn peaceful American indian who were savagely decimated by those intent on revenge for the initial bloodshed. Neither should be neglected in the true historical context.
