The Chief Seattle Statue at Tilikum Place at Fifth Avenue and Cedar Street. The main attraction of this small square is a life-size statue of Chief Seattle, for whom the city was named. Wrapped in a stained copper shawl, the chief stands on a pedestal with one arm raised in symbolic greeting to the first white settlers who landed at Alki Point in 1851. Bear heads at the base of the pedestal spout streams of water into a pool.  Tilikum Place itself (the name meaning "welcome" or "greetings" in Chinook jargon) is located at the juncture of the original land claims of Denny, Boren, and Bell. The statue, sculpted by James When from the only existing photo of the chief, was unveiled on Founders' Day, 13 November 1912, by Chief Seattle's great-great-granddaughter.

The Force Is With Us!
Seattle Police Bike Patrols have dramatically increased around Belltown. When Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels recently toured Belltown with residents and business owners, Belltowners universally spoke of the need for a greater police presence in our neighborhood. As a direct result, Seattle Police Captain Michael Sanford has reassigned and dedicated more Seattle Police Bike Patrols exclusively to Belltown.
