From Alvarado Street, look south across the parking lot behind the Art & Cultural Center Designed by local artist Brett Stokes. It is a gigantic portrait of a native American, the scene depicting a red tail hawk, the guardian of the Great Spirit's creation, surveying the rolling land with a stern and watchful eye. It honors the local native people whose artifacts are found throughout the area.
