There is a new attraction standing on the stage at the Altamont High School. It stands 10' high and weighs 1500 lbs. It's very impressive! Our Indian is made of Illinois White Oak, a native tree of Illinois, from a tree that was cut down behind the High School. Instead of cutting the log for fire wood, it took a couple of days of work from two very skilled fellows and we have a wooden Indian. Notice the detail of the face and the name Altamont on its shield.
Special thanks to Lynn Kull for the information and second picture.
