The nearby plaque reads:
You are viewing an original Peter Toth Indian Monument that was dedicated on this spot July 4th 1978. Peter Toth, a Hungarian Sculpture has given a gift of one Indian monument to every state in the union, and fortunately the City of Iowa Falls was chosen for the Iowa site.

This monument was carved from a locally grown cottonwood tree and including the pedestal is 33 feet in height. The design is a Peter Toth original with the three disced headband and a neck broach similar to ones worn by the local Indian tribes.
