An earlier chronicle of the Big Indian's owners provided by Chris Madsen: "The F-ing Big Indian. The family version is Freeport Big Indian. Levinsky's, alas, is gone, replaced by a boring ski shop. Before Levinsky's the store was the Casco Bay Trading Company, selling cheap Native American trinkets made in Japan and anything you can name made out of polished cedar. When they moved the Big Indian from its manufacturer to Maine in the '60s, it caused such a sensation on the NJ Turnpike that the state demanded the driver only drive at night."
