"The Five Moons"

Society Unveils Native American Ballerina SculpturesA group of larger-than-life bronze statues depicting Oklahoma’s five internationally acclaimed Native American ballerinas were unveiled Wednesday at 6 p.m. on the west lawn of the Tulsa Historical Society.

Entitled “The Five Moons,” the sculptures portray Rosella Hightower, Moscelyne Larkin, Maria Tallchief and Marjorie Tallchief and Yvonne Chouteau, who was able to attend the unveiling. The project’s name is taken from the 1967 ballet “The Four Moons,” a production choreographed specifically for the ballerinas.
