Big Indian.

Big Chief and Totem Poles

Big Chieftain still rules over the Big Chieftain Motel on main road through Carrington. Motel parking lot also has three gaudy cement totem poles.

I am happy to report the Carrington, ND Muffler Man is alive and well. I took this photo on 7/26/01. It is in front of the Chieftain Motel and Restaurant. I didn't record the exact address, but it is in the middle of town, and the town isn't that big.

This one, unlike Jesse Jamestown who was a mere half hour drive away, is an Indian and located at Carrington's finest -- the Chieftain Motel and Restaurant. I remember the thrill as a youngster driving through town, stopping at the restaurant to eat, and then climbing around the Indian Chief's feet.
