Lincoln Nebraska ~ Warner Chamber Native American doors ~ Formerly the Senate Chambers

The colorful doors to the Warner Chamber tell of Native American culture and life. Corn, the Native American's main agricultural crop and important food source is in the center of the doorway, represented as a tree of life. The Thunderbird, a symbol of rain and life is pictured at its center. On the sides, an Indian man is standing on an otter, a symbol of medicine and an Indian woman is standing on a turtle, symbol of fertility.
