Nice little town.

The 18-foot-tall Indian Head of Indian Head, built in 1985, is notable for its swept-back, dagger-like feathered headdress. It looks like it should be on a pivot, so it could always face into the wind.

The Big Indian Head is beside the tourist information stand. Also features a buffalo rubbing rock and an authentically-crafted Red River cart.

Indian Head

One of my more anticipated stops was in Indian Head, Saskatchewan. I had seen pictures of this huge Indian Head statue and most definitely wanted to see it. The Indian Head was officially unveiled on August 4, 1985. The statue is 18 feet high (the head itself is 10 feet tall). It weighs approximately 3,500 pounds and is made from metal pipe, metal mesh and cement. The statue was designed by Don Foulds of Saskatoon.

It is very easy to get to, just off of Highway 1 in Indian Head.
