Old Wives Lake

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Old Wives Lake

The legend of Old Wives Lake involves a group of camping Cree Natives who were found by some Blackfoot scouts. The Cree knew the Blackfoot warriors would ambush them in the morning, so a group of elderly Cree women agreed to stay behind as decoys while the rest of the tribe, including the children, got away. The Blackfoot warriors did return and killed the women, but the trick worked, and the rest of the tribe got away. The spirits of the “old wives” are said to live on in this area, occasionally ringing out ghostly laughter.
