The Chief Bemidji Statue Project committee has established a fund at Northwest Minnesota Foundation for the purpose of accepting tax-deductible contributions from individuals, businesses, and organizations. Project funds will be used to commission an artist to create a new, realistic sculpture of Chief Bemidji that will be made of stone or bronze. The new statue will be located in Library Park, and will depict Chief Bemidji in a dignified and respectful way. Living descendants of Chief Bemidji from the Leech Lake area are actively involved with the committee's work and provide guidance throughout the process.
The Chief Bemidji Statue Project committee hopes to raise $116,500 through grants and donations. The George W. Neilson Foundation recently awarded the project a $25,000 grant, with a requirement of equal matching funds.
To make a tax-deductible contribution, make checks payable to "Chief Bemidji Statue Project Fund" and mail to: Northwest Minnesota Foundation, 4225 Technology Drive NW, Bemidji, MN 56601. For telephone assistance call the Foundation at 218-759-2057
