This wooden statue titled Nee-gaw-nee-gaw-bow (Leading Man) stands in the western Upper Peninsula town of Wakefield. It was carved by 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 from 1971 to 1988. The statue was carved from one piece of pine donated by the Ottawa National Forest and was completed in 1988.
