This is the panel directly opposite the main stage opening from the previous posting. It appears to represent a Native American chief offering a gift of corn to a settler.

Dan Grigg Enterprise Co., Mitchell, So. Dak.

The description states:

THE WORLD’S ONLY CORN PALACE

MITCHELL, SOUTH DAKOTA

One of the many panels on the inside of the world’s only Corn Palace. These panels are made from natural colored grains and grasses. The entire building is redecorated annually at a cost of $10,000. The annual festivalĀ is held the last week in September, but the building is open FREE the year around. It is one of the most outstanding exhibits of nature’s wonderful colors blended into interesting designs and pictures by local decorators.

–This panel is unusual in that it includes a corner section as part of the design, instead of being completely flat. The image likely dates to the 1940s.
