This Whispering Giant: Sequoyah sculpture calls Cherokee, North Carolina home.
Back in 2015, I participated in the Whispering Giants Grand Tour. It proved to be an excellent inspiration to get out for a ride. Each excursion was exciting. Seeing these fantastic carved Giants and how each one has so much character was a great experience.
Though the grand tour has long since passed, I still stop to see the giants when one is close by.
This statue honoring Sequoyah, the Cherokee genius who invented the Cherokee alphabet, was sculpted from a single giant California Sequoia (Redwood) log which was donated and shipped by Georgia-Pacific.
This is sculptor Peter Wolf Toth’s 63rd statue across the United States and Canada commemorating the contributions of Native Americans. Toth was invited o sculpt the Sequoyah statue by Chief Robert S. Youngdeer and museum director Ken Blankenship.
Dedicated 30 September 1989.”
