Email News Alerts

The Bemidji City Council will consider a request Monday to support a project seeking a new, more realistic statue of Chief Bemidji for the Library Park area.


The council will hear from members of the Chief Bemidji statue committee during its regular council meeting at 7 p.m. at City Hall.

The hope is to commission a high-quality, life-size or larger realistic statue of Chief Bemidji, made of stone, bronze or other permanent material, and locate it in or near Library Park.
