World's Largest Tomahawk

It's 54 feet long, almost 40 ft. high, weighs 8 tons, and is cantilevered through the top of a giant 30 ft. tall concrete teepee. The tomahawk handle is an actual fir tree and the ax head is fiberglass.

It was created in 1971 during Saskatchewan's "Homecoming" commemoration of Indian treaties signed in 1871.
