A sculpture of a Nisenan Indian dancer by North Auburn artist Douglas Van Howd is now the focal point of Downtown Auburn’s Central Square.
The statue is installed on a brick base and finishing touches, including the addition of bronze oak leaves at the dancer’s feet, are in place.
Here’s a photo that I hired foothills photographer Ben Furtado to capture for the official Placer County Welcome Guide, coming out next month. Some background on the Nevada City Rancheria and its Tribe of Nisenan Indians is here.
