The Council Oak Tree, near 18th Street and South Cheyenne Avenue, is one of Tulsa's most noted landmarks.
In 1832, the Lochapoka clan of the Creek Indians spread ashes from their sacred ceremonial fires in Alabama under the tree.
The 18-foot bronze sculpture of flames will be surrounded by four story boards depicting the route the Five Civilized Tribes took from the southeastern United States to Indian Territory, beginning in the 1830s.
I might've gone with something more obvious. Something that doesn't require reading a plaque to understand. But okay.
