Created by artist Lionel Peyachew, the life-sized bronze sculpture depicts a woman named Wicanhpi Duta Win or Red Star Woman, a fancy dancer with her shawl as her wings. The sculpture was chosen in 2015 following a vote on several different submissions. The project is funded by the STC, the Province of Saskatchewan and the SPS.
A formal unveiling is planned for Friday, May 5, 2017, beginning at 11:00 a.m. in front of the SPS Headquarters building at 76 – 25th Street East. The public is welcome to attend. It is recommended that those attending arrive early, as large numbers are expected.
