Long Description:
Despite having the label, "Chief Tawonka", this Cigar Store Indian was just an advertisement...not a depiction of a real person. Copies of this sculpture appear in other places confusing the matter more by attributing the following quote to this fictional Chief:
"We were free until we stopped fighting, now, no one has freedom."

One of these sculptures is on sale at this website (visit link) for $1150.
