The statue is located at Shaler Park, accessible from southbound North Madison Street / County Highway M, south of its intersection with Nummerdor Drive, at or near 345 North Madison Street, Waupun, Wisconsin 53963.

The statue was sculpted by James Earle Fraser after it was commissioned by Clarence Shaler as a tribute to the Native Americans.[2] It is a copy cast in bronze of a plaster statue by Fraser that gained notoriety at the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition. The original was moved from Visalia, California to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1968, where it was restored and is now on display at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. The City of Visalia received a bronze replica as a replacement.
