The statue is of a pretty handsome fellow, in a very lovely area, but to be honest - this is Mohican and Nipmuc territory/homelands, NOT Mohawk. The fountain was erected by The Royal Order of the Red Men, in which you must be white to...More

If this doesn't move you, then you are not a true American. If you have a heart, it will inspire you. It's a pleasure and some pain to see this grand tribute to the American Indians. Tucked away in the beautiful, peaceful and total solitude...More

Such an important monument should be better advertised, should have parking for the visitors, and probably a guide who can illustrate visitors of the importance of the monument.

This is along the side of the road in Charlemont, and was easily accessible from our campground at Mohawk Trail State Forest. It is a really nice tribute to the native peoples, with poetry, the sculpture and other memorials. It's worth a quick stop, or...More

The park is a great idea. It is done very tastefully and is a great tribute to the Mohawk Indian. Its too bad that it is across the street from a trailer park. Parking is a little scarce but you can pull off onto the...More
