Indian Mother, Timberline Lodge
One of 2 carved statues created for the lodge by Paul Buchner in 1990. Originally planned to be part of the lodge, the statues of a Pioneer Mother and a Indian Mother were not commissioned at the time the lodge was built due to a lack of funding. The statues are based on sketches of the proposed statues made by Florence Thomas as part of the original lodge plans. This statue is the Indian Mother, the other one not pictured is the Pioneer Mother.
