Nee-gaw-nee-gaw-bow (Leading Man). Indian statue by famous artist, Peter “Wolf” Toth to honor the Chippewa Indians. It is the 59th statue on the “Trail of Whispering Giants.” Peter Toth has donated a different Indian carving to each of the 50 states and Canada as a successful completion of his dream from 1971 to 1988. Toth’s persistent work put his Indian carvings in Ripley’s-Believe It or Not. It is located on the lakeside pier next to the Wakefield Visitor’s Center. The Indian statue was carved from one piece of pine donated by the Ottawa National Forest and was completed in 1988.
