Big Indian Shop and Statue

The shop is now named Native Views, but the big Indian is still there along with some metal teepees and a cool bear. No live animals, though.

Big Indian on the Mohawk Trail

Located on (Rt 2) the scenic Mohawk Trail. He was never a Muffler Man, but this Indian is about 20' tall. If you go you will be pleased to see a bear on the other side of the "Big Indian Gift Shop," which has terrific signage and plenty of other really "attractive" creations about the place.

Mohawk Trail attractions

I'd like to add some specifics. The Mohawk Trail is Rte. 2 from Greenfield, Massachusetts, westward. A few (10?) minutes west of Greenfield, on Rte. 2, is the Big Indian Shop, which features a 20 ft. tall Indian. This store also has a pen with various animals (goats, llamas, etc.) you can feed.
