Gift of W.J. Landon in memory of
Ida Cone Landon 1900

The Statuary grouping of We-No-Nah and its turtles and pelicans was erected in Central Park on August 26, 1902, and incorporated in Levee Plaza 1977.

We-No-Nah, meaning first born daughter in the Dakota language, is the namesake for our city and county. Legend tells of her love for a simple hunter instead of the warrior chosen by her father, Chief Wahpashaw. Rather than marry a man she didn't love, We-No-Nah climbed to the top of a bluff overlooking the river, proclaimed her true love and jumped to her death.
