About the Kanza Museum logo





The Kanza Museum has combined the “Southwind” statue into the logo design. The arch of the museum building represents the Kanza people, and the sculpture of the rider represents their relationship to nature and their respect of the south wind.

The logo also incorporates the four colors representing the directions they face to invoke the wind. East [red] is the first direction. South [black] is the second direction. West [yellow] is the third direction. North [blue] is the fourth direction.

Logo design is by Bryan M. Richter, Glenpool, Okla., who has also assisted in the production of the Kanza News and the Kaw Nation calendars since 2009.
