Since it opened in 1914, the heart of the Mohawk Trail—a 38-mile neck-craning stretch of road between the Western Massachusetts towns of Greenfield and North Adams—has forced drivers to take their time. All those hairpin turns … all those vistas … all those totem poles. And one Big Indian. It’s this 28-foot-tall icon standing in front of its namesake shop in Charlemont that has for the last 38 years reminded travelers that it’s not just about the destination—it’s also about the beaded belts, headdresses, and rubber hatchets you collect along the way. Say “Cheese.”
