this statue resides in Thief River Falls, Minnesota. You can find him along the river walk.
Here is what is written below the statue:

At the old crossing treaty of 1863 a provision was made for the retention of 640 acres of land near the mouth of thief river by a chief of the red lake band of chippewa. the chief Meskoikonaye (red robe) section, on which a large part of thief river falls is located, was inherited by his son ,who was also known as Meskoikonaye.

In 1879, following a government survey, the chief’s son was coerced into leasing land to lumbermen. In 1895, the first sale of land was made from the chief’s section.

By 1901, Meskoikonaye had been forced to part with the last of his holdings.
