Part of the garden is owned by the Osages and Cherokee tribes. Donated by the city on July 22, 1992, it now stands a commemorative plaque, along with the famous giant sequoia.
Would you know how to recognize this conifer with red and thick bark, which can live more than 3000 years and reach a height of 100 m?
For the record, the American Indians of the Osage tribe living in Kansas, arrived in France in 1827 to plead the cause of their people and 3 of them were welcomed in 1829 by Mr. Dubourg. They will return to their country thanks to the generosity of the Montalbanais.
In September 1989, the Oklahoma-Occitania association resumed contact with the tribe, displaced in Oklahoma, who accepted a cultural exchange project. Since 1999, Montauban has been twinned with the town of Pawhuska, capital of the Osages.
