Description: The Mesquabuck stone, characterized by its visible red and white strata, carries the name of the Potawatomi chief Mes’kwah-buk, whose name signifies the red color of the sky at sunrise and sunset. Each stone holds a deep reverence honoring the ancestors of American Indian people in Oklahoma whose perseverance and resilience has enabled Native cultures to survive in Oklahoma as independent sovereign nations.
