Georgia's Native American Monument

166 S. First St.
Colquitt, GA 39837


Georgia's official monument to America's indigenous people is located in Colquitt on Highway 27. The 27-foot masterpiece sculpted by "humanitarian" artist, Peter Toth, pays tribute to the spirit of the Native Americans who inhabited this land long before Europeans arrived. The sculpture is carved from a red cedar log. Hungarian born, Toth began a quest 30 + years ago to pay tribute to Native Americans by creating giant sculptures entitled "Whispering Giants" in each of the 50 states. He has completed almost 70 of the huge works of art. Toth chose Colquitt because of the spirit of hospitality, friendship, and cooperation he experienced when he visited almost 30 years ago.
