Wichita is right in the heart of the United States and right at the point where the Big and Little Arkansas Rivers join together. Native Americans still gather at this inviting and mystical spot. The “Keeper of the Plains,” a majestic and commanding figure, created by the late Wichita artist Blackbear Bosin, now marks this historic spot.
The Wichita Indians, who lived in this area, gave our city its historic name. Later, settlers discovered this land of subtle beauty, good earth, water and an abundance of wildlife, which was to be named Sedgwick County. The city’s boundaries now encircle 110 square miles, yet the rivers remain the principal gathering point of the metroplex.
