"Indian Land Dancing" pays tribute to Native American culture and history in Chicago.
The history of the Native community in Chicago is chronicled on both sides of the underpass. Pedestrians can walk under the bridge and get a historical overview of the Native community by starting on the right side of the bridge. It depicts the Treaty of Greenville (OH) in 1795 through the Pottawatomie Trail of Death (1848). The left side of the bridge covers the development of the Chicago Indian community in the more recent past beginning with the Termination Era and putting the current community in a historical context.
