Description

Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity's snow sculpture for the 1960 King Kold Karnival. The sculpture portrays a Native American playing a bongo drum in the shape of a gopher head. The winter festival known as the King Kold Karnival was a staple at UND from 1951-1968. The event usually included contests, sled races, dances, beauty pageants, and most notably large snow sculptures. A brief resurgence emerged in 1979 but was not continued.
