Documentary brings Oklahoman’s works to life


People who enter the Oklahoma state capital building from the southern entrance pass a large statue of a Native American woman that is titled “As Long as the Waters Flow.” In front of the Oklahoma History Center southeast of the Capital building stands a bronze sculpture of an Indian warrior that is titled “The Unconquered.” The inscriptions on both works indicate that they were created by Allan Houser, who is identified as a Chiricahua Apache. His work also graced Oklahoma license plates in the recreation of his painting “Sacred Rain Arrow.” Earlier this year the work of Allan Houser, who passed away in 1994, was featured in an exhibit at the Oklahoma History Center.
