Cook-Lynn said Halley Park is the only option for the garden. The site, she said, is a part of historic trust lands given to Native Americans, and it will serve a symbolic purpose for the hundreds of Native American families who were forced from their homes when city officials decided they were "unsightly" for tourists.

"It will serve as a powerful symbol, powerful," she said.

She said the disenfranchisement of Native Americans in this area has led to the propagation of a warped version of their history.

She said when she began to envision this project she wanted it to tell the story of the Lakota, Nakota and Dakota people, who are "survivors of a rather catastrophic history."

"We are a tourist attraction in this town," Cook-Lynn said. "And that's fine ... but this is an effort on our part to tell you who we are and who we've been in our own terms."

She said the sculpture garden is not meant for tourists, so the location and parking should not be considered a problem.

"It's not a place to take little white third- and fourth-graders to learn about Native history," Cook-Lynn said.

Astrology chart of the bombing of the Boston Marathon. Uranus square Pluto can create big explosions. Pluto is in the 5th house of recreation-marathon. The most telling is the asteroid "achilles" in the 12th house of secrets and death. We are praying for you Boston.
