With   respect   and   honor   to   Native   American   veterans,   our   design   for   the   memorial   begins   with   manifestation   of their   courage   and   sacrifice   to   the   country.   In   this   regard,   the   memorial   design   unfolds   from   the   center   of   the wetland.   Outline   of   the   existing   wetland   is   traced   over   to   create   the   form   of   space   as   if   it   is   naturally   given   from the current environment rather than manly built structure.

The   center   of   the   wetland   is   shaped   as   a   form   of   shelter   to   create   void   space   through   strings   of   chains   which consist   of   copper,   bronze,   and   silver   chains.   Through   the   mixture   of   colors,   we   intend   to   reflect   cultural   symbol and   metaphorical   form   of   bravery   and   sacrifice   from   silhouette   of   feathers   which   is   to   convey   the   heart   of   a warrior of Native Americans.
In   order   to   experience   the   wetland   and   the   memorial,   we   further   developed   bridges   to   connect   people   to   the heart   of   the   wetland   with   relief   wall   sculptures   which   depict   major   military   conflicts   that   native   American Indians   have   served   alongside   the   bridges’   passageway.   The   center   is   placed   to   experience   the   bravery   heart and   loyalty   of   the   native   American   soldiers   in   abstract   expression   of   the   form   by   shaded   form   of   shelter   with central sculpture feather.
Through   the   elements   of   the   memorial,   we   imagine   the   built   feature   of   chains   and   structure   above   are   to   reach up   toward   the   sky   acting   not   only   as   structural   support,   but   also   as   a   spiritual   linkage   between   souls   and   the sky   above.   Countless   metal   chains   hanging   from   the   roof   structure   provide   a   balance   between   openness   and sense   of   enclosure,   as   if   it   resonates   native   American   soldiers’   hearts   toward   others.   Thus,   installed   LEDs   at   the end   of   the   chains   is   a   way   to   give   a   sense   of   space,   and   symbolically   it   is   to   represent   hope   which   is   gained from sacrifices.
In   summary,   the   memorial   is   vague   in   form   but   concrete   in   space,   metaphor   by   outline   but   substantial   by lights,   and   unique   by   surroundings   but   familiar   by   nature.   S acrifices   and   dedications   to   the   country   by   Native American Soldiers shall not be forgotten.
