Yelp 

Legend has it that General William Clark, who founded Paducah, named it in honor of the "Padouca" Native Americans, a subtribe of the Chickasaw who lived and hunted in the area until the Jackson Purchase in 1818. The statue was sculptured by Lorado Taft in 1909. Mr. Taft combined features of various Indian tribes in its execution.
