Description Sacajawea II, polychrome bronze, 1980
Harry Jackson (b. 1924)

In 1980 Jackson cast Sacagawea, a monumental nine foot statue in bronze for the garden of the Plains Indian Museum, Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Cody, Wyo. This work was the inspiration for Sacagawea II, a limited edition replica in painted bronze. Having consulted with the Shoshone tribe, the artist now uses the tribe's preferred spelling of Sacajawea.
