Significance of Four Natural Elements
Water, Wind, Fire and Earth
Enjoy an intimate connection with the natural environment as earth, wind, water and fire are integrated into your total experience, from arrival along the Oklahoma River to your ascension to the top of the promontory mound. This interwoven connection to the environment reflects the respect Native peoples have for nature as a connected whole.
“Listen to the wind songs and hear our ancestors whisper in the leaves of the trees,
gallop across a thundering sky, weep in the waves of the ocean, laugh down a trickling stream
and sing from the twinkling stars that have long since lived but still burn bright in the night." - Russ Tall Chief, Osage
