Gloria Galasso spins and dyes much of the yarn that Patricia uses in her art work. Gloria weaves in the Navajo tradition, spins, dyes and needle-felts, and is also a multiple award winner at both the local Kay County Free Fair, and at the Tulsa State Fair. She had two pieces accepted for exhibit at the Fiberworks 2005 Show in Oklahoma City.
 
 

Never do anything for just one reason! Tres Hermanas Wool Works gets its name from two different sources. Although no longer involved in the ownership and day-to-day management of a flock of Navajo-Churros, the first three Navajo-Churros we helped purchase were sisters. The main reason for the name, however, is that the three of us involved in the business are the "daughters" of Arliss Moses. (Two of us are his real daughters, and the third might as well be!) Anyway, he introduces us all that way and we are proud to claim him as our "Dad!"

Dedicated on April 22, 1930, this 17 ft tall bronze statue by Bryant Baker is on the National Register of Historic Places. It stands on a limestone pyramid which makes the total monument over 30 feet high. It was donated to the people of Oklahoma by famed oilman and governor E. W. Marland, to honor the spirit of the women pioneers.

Standing Bear Park and Pow Wow

att5.jpeg

The Standing Bear monument is a long-overdue tribute to the Ponca Tribe and its great leader. The 22 ft statue by Oreland C. Joe looks east and north to the Ponca Tribe's original homeland in Nebraska. The surrounding park contains tributes to the Ponca, Kaw, Osage, Otoe-Missouria, Pawnee, and Tonkawa peoples. The tale of Ponca's heartache and tragedy is memorialized forever by this gorgeous statue and park.
 
The park is the site of the annual Standing Bear Pow-Wow. In 2005, for the first time, all six of the area tribes will be co-hosting the pow-wow. This event, with dancing, Native American arts and crafts, and traditional foods, will be held on September 23-25, 2005

Ponca City also boasts two of the most beautiful and historic homes in Oklahoma, the Grand Home and the Marland Mansion, both built by oilman and governor E.W. Marland. The stately Grand Home houses ten different collections of art and artefacts. The Mansion is called the Palace on the Prairie and is built during the Arts and Crafts movement.
