Indian Country Law Enforcement Officers Memorial

Indian Country Law Enforcement Officers Memorial

The Memorial site was designed with the Native American traditions in mind.  The Memorial is encompassed by the Circle of Life.  The Circle is broken in one location to allow for entrance and departure.  There is sage planted in all four directions next to the Memorial to sanctify the site.  The four planter areas are filled with white, yellow, black and red rocks and foliage.  This indicates the nationalities of the world and indicates that we are all brothers/sisters in the world.  The formation area is done in earth-tone brown indicating mother earth.  The foliage next to the formation area also has been configured in a manner as it relates to the Native American beliefs and traditions.  Upon completion of these ceremonies this site will remain sacred ground for all Indian nations.
