The Big F Indian

I am the son of Julian Leslie, the businessman who commissioned the making of the Big Indian. Although "guess-timates" for his height have varied wildly from 20 to 50 feet, the Big Chief is in fact 40 feet tall. He also stands atop a six-foot solid concrete pedestal, making him as high as a telephone pole.

Big Freeport Indian Statue

Freeport's big Indian is still looking good along Route 1. The establishment he stands in front of is the Conundrum Wine Bistro. A conundrum, indeed.

The BFI - Indian Statue

In local parlance the Indian is known as the "BFI." Big (cough) Freeport Indian is one explanation of the initials, but there are two others that range from PG13 to R rated.
