Standing Bear Park, Museum & Education Center in Ponca City honors Native Americans with a 22-foot bronze statue of Ponca Chief Standing Bear. This outstanding sculpture sits on a 63-acre park that boasts a walking trail among native grasses and wildflowers, a peaceful memorial grove, a pond and outdoor interpretive center. These elements come together to tell the history of American Indians in Oklahoma.

Visitors to this park are greeted by the larger-than-life sculpture of Standing Bear, located where the actual chief is believed to have walked more than a century ago. Standing Bear is famous for making a landmark speech before a U.S. District Court stating all American Indians deserved the same recognition and protection under the law as white men. This Ponca City monument built in his honor celebrates all Native Americans with artifacts, artwork and educational material, all in a breathtaking setting.
