Tupelo Discovers Piominko

Greg Pirkle

Greg Pirkle discusses the Tupelo Rotary's development of the statue of Piominko now in Fair Park outside City Hall. Piominko's appeal as a subject was his leadership not only among Chickasaws, but nationally, among colonial and American leaders like George Washington. "The most important leader ever to come out of Tupelo" is becoming a strong point of pride.
