5 Year Anniversary

In memory of the 10 victims, survivors, our community of Santa Fe, Texas, and all individuals impacted by the school shooting on May 18, 2018. In recognition of the resilience and contributions that Native Nations have made throughout history and continued strength of those affected by great tragedy. A gift of artistic expression with monumental purpose that serves as an authentic and respectful celebration of departed ancestors.

Representing the spirit of warriors.

Warrior Spirit

A Santa Fe Ten Memorial Remembrance Piece

On May 18, 2023, we commemorated the 5-year anniversary of the mass shooting at Santa Fe High School with the unveiling of Warrior Spirit. The original composition by Erik Christianson represents an American Indian Warrior holding ten eagle feathers aloft, communing with the spirit world to honor the Ten souls taken too soon. Warrior Spirit provides an opportunity to learn from stories as told through a statue of art, the voice of song, or the movement of dance. It represents an expression of unspoken language and traditions with monumental purpose.


“Warrior Spirit is our vision for the community as a whole… victims, survivors, and the City of Santa Fe. I feel this piece unites us all.” 
– Rosie Stone, Chris Stone’s mother
