IN NATIVE AMERICAN LEGEND, "LELAWALA" WAS A BEAUTIFUL MAIDEN OF THE PEACEFUL TRIBE OF THE "ONGIARA" WHO LIVED BY NIAGARA FALLS, BUT IT SEEMS THAT A TERRIBLE CURSE FELL UPON THEM. FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON, THEY WERE DYING. THE MEDICINE MAN BELIEVED THAT THE TRIBE HAD OFFENDED "HINUM", THE "GOD OF THUNDER" WHO MADE HIS ABODE WITH HIS TWO SONS IN A CAVE BEHIND THE FALLS. SO, AT FIRST, THE INDIANS SENT CANOES WHICH WERE LADEN WITH FRUIT, FLOWERS, AND GAME OVER THE FALLS TO SATIATE "HINUM", BUT THE DYING CONTINUED. IN DESPERATION, THEY BEGAN TO SACRIFICE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE TRIBE DURING A CEREMONIAL FEAST ONCE A YEAR...AND IT JUST SO HAPPENED THAT ONE YEAR, "LELAWALA "WAS CHOSEN.

THE TRIBE PLACED "LELAWALA", WEARING A WHITE DOESKIN ROBE AND A WREATH OF WOODLAND FLOWERS IN HER HAIR, INTO A WHITE BIRCH CANOE AND SENT HER OVER THE WATERFALL...TO DIE. HER FATHER, HEARTBROKEN OVER THE LOSS OF HIS DAUGHTER, JUMPED INTO HIS OWN CANOE AND FOLLOWED HER. BUT, UNLIKE THE OTHER GIRLS, "LELAWA" DID NOT DIE FOR IN THE SPIRIT WORLD, BOTH OF "HINUM'S" SONS CAUGHT HER IN THEIR ARMS BECAUSE BOTH WANTED TO MARRY HER. SHE AGREED TO MARRY THE ONE ONE SON WHO TOLD HER WHY THE TRIBE WAS DYING; HENCE, IT WAS THE YOUNGER SON WHO TOLD HER OF A GIANT WATER SNAKE THAT THAT WAS POISONING THEIR DRINKING WATER. THE SNAKE WOULD THEN DEVOUR THE DEAD.

SO, "LELAWALA "WENT TO HER PEOPLE IN SPIRIT AND TOLD THEM IN THEIR DREAMS TO SET A TRAP TO DESTROY THE SERPENT. THE INDIAN BRAVES WENT OUT MORTALLY WOUNDED SNAKE ON ITS NEXT VISIT TO THE VILLAGE, AND WHILE RETURNING TO HIS LAIR ON THE RIVER, THE SERPENT CAUGHT HIS HEAD ON ONE SIDE OF THE RIVER AND HIS TAIL ON THE OTHER SIDE FORMING A SEMI-CIRCLE WHICH TODAY WE KNOW OF AS "HORSESHOE FALLS". AND "LELAWALA" RETURNED TO THE CAVE OF THE GOD WHERE SHE REIGNS AS MAID OF THE MIST. HER SPIRIT STILL LIVES IN THE CAVES BENEATH "NIAGARA FALLS."
