LAC QUI PARLE, Lac qui Parle County, Minnesota
French priest translated
Dakota name, lake that Speaks
Into his own tongue
Note: Dakota is a native American nation consisting primarily of Sioux living in South Western Minnesota. the tribal elders took guidance from the voices they heard from the lake.
A late edit: I should have explained that the voices heard were created by the wind across the lake which is situated in a unique geologic formation. And for sports people it’s also considered the best walleye-pike fishing lake in Minnesota.
