Hayward, CA
Cross Plains, TN
The Indian statue in Hayward was previously located in Arcadia, FL at the Peace River Campground. It was knocked over and damaged during Hurricane Charley in 2004. It was then abandoned in the nearby woods. In 2019, the broken statue was moved to Bell Plastics in Hayward where it will eventually be restored. The statue is missing its feet and an arm. 1 and 2.

The Indian statue in Cross Plains stood in front of Peddler's Antique Mall which has been closed for many years. In 2009, he was knocked over by a storm and removed. The statue had broken off at the legs and was missing his right arm. Later that year, the statue was completely restored and moved across the street to Sad Sam's Fireworks Outlet (photos above). This statue's Pink Elephant companion is still across the street. For more, see this website. [map]

Carrington, ND
The Indian statue in Carrington was installed at the Chieftain Motel by the 1970s. The motel opened in 1964 and this statue might have been installed there then. The building now houses the Chieftain Conference Center. [map]

San Antonio, TX
This Indian statue was installed in downtown San Antonio in the 1960s at a Superior Pontiac dealership. In 1977, it was moved to its current location and installed on tall poles above the Red McCombs Superior used car lot, visible to motorists on NW Loop 410. In 2017, the statue was removed and restored by Master Refinishers. [map]

Waxahachie, TX
This Indian statue stands in the football stadium of Waxahachie High School. The school's teams are known as the Waxahachie Indians and the Lady Indians. The statue has been there since 1977 and supposedly came from a Chief Auto Parts store. In 2011, the statue was damaged in a windstorm. He was removed and repaired. A new logo was painted on his shirt at that time. For more, see this website. [map]

Wisconsin Dells, WI
This Indian statue, known as "Big Chief", stood in front of Big Chief Karts. By 1985, his saluting hand held a go-kart. By 1998, a giant Trojan Horse and a roller coaster were installed next to the statue. By the early 1990s, the Chief was converted into a Trojan when the park expanded and was renamed Big Chief's Mt. Olympus. In 2005, with more park expansion, the Trojan was moved further inside the park where his upper torso projected from an arch. I don't know what they did with his bottom half of the statue. His raised hand held the Olympic flame at that point. The park dropped any reference to Big Chief and is now known as "Mt. Olympus Water and Theme Park". By 2008, his upper torso was gone, too. In 2019, what appears to be part of the upper torso was discovered near the pool at Mt. Olympus.

I have read that there was once a non-Indian, bare-chested Paul Bunyan style statue in the Dells. It stood in front of a Burger Chef restaurant holding a hamburger and wore a Burger Chef belt buckle. Does anyone know more about this or have photos of the statue?

Parkersburg, WV
This Indian statue at Cherokee Village Auto Center was installed here in the late 1960s or early 1970s. [map]
