Kansas City Scout Statue, Kansas City

Kansas City Scout Statue, Kansas City

The Scout is a famous statue by Cyrus E. Dallin in Kansas City. It is more than 10 feet tall, and depicts a Sioux Indian on horseback surveying the landscape. The Scout was conceived by Dallin in 1910, and exhibited at the 1915 Panama–Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco, where it won a gold medal. On its way back east, the statue was installed on a temporary basis in Penn Valley Park. The statue proved so popular that $15,000 in nickels and dimes was raised to purchase it through a campaign called "The Kids of Kansas City."

The statue was dedicated in 1922 as a permanent memorial to local Indian tribes. Several area attractions have been named after the iconic statue, most notably, Kansas City Scout, which is the Kansas City Metropolitan Area's electronic traffic alert system. It also both inspired the name of the National Hockey League's Kansas City Scouts and was featured on the team's logo.
