Native American Statue, Minneapolis, Minnesota

This image shows a life-sized statue of the legendary American Indians Hiawatha and Minnehaha.

Genuine Curteich-Chicago “C.T. Art Colortone”

The description states:

HIAWATHA AND MINNEHAHA STATUE.

MINNEHAHA PARK, MINNEAPOLIS, MINN.

This statue, immortalized by Longfellow in his poem “The Song of Hiawatha” is located just above Minnehaha Falls, a few yards from the beautiful Mississippi River Gorge.

Hiawatha was a founder of the Iroquois Confederacy. Minnehaha, however, is fictional, from the poem noted above.

This image likely dates from the 1940s.
