Translation: Evil Creature Lake
Feature: lake

Once upon a time, some Innu children were playing in the water near the shore of this lake. Some hunters were on a hill above the lake when they saw a giant creature swimming towards the children. They cried out to the children telling them to get out of the water. If they had not warned the children, the creature would have got them. It had a spoon-shaped head, with a tail and was black in colour. It looked a lot like a beaver beetle (Leptinillus validus).
