  1. I am a Barber County native, born and raised. We were taught about the legend in school. My mom was raised just north of that spot. Read about the Medicine Lodge Peace Treaty of 1867. I was raised on ground that was the Native American campground during the treaty. We used to play on the grounds of the actual treaty (not marked). I cut my teeth on the legend of Flower Pot Mountain. Locals have no doubt about the authenticity of the account.
