Manitoba has a special place in the world of monsters. The word “cryptid” was first used by Manitoba’s John E. Wall in 1983 to describe animals sought by cryptozoologists. The province of Manitoba stretches from the U.S. border of North Dakota in the south to the territory of Nunavut to the north. It is the eighth largest of Canada’s provinces and territories at 651,036 square kilometers, and boasts prairies, farmland, mountains, lakes, rivers and tundra. With 645 kilometers of Hudson Bay coastline to the northeast, Manitoba is the only Prairie Province (which includes Saskatchewan and Alberta) to have a saltwater border. The province was created in 1869 under much protest when the Métis (an aboriginal people who take their roots from First Nations and Europeans) rebelled against Canada for, among other things, installing an English-speaking governor over a French-speaking one. The nerve. An estimated 1.3 million people live in Manitoba. Famous residents include actress Anna Paquin, “Let’s Make a Deal” game show host Maurice “Monty Hall” Halperin and the band Bachman-Turner Overdrive. Manitoba has more than 110,000 lakes that fill 15.6 percent of the province’s surface area. Maybe that’s why Manitoba has so many lake monsters.

The name Manitoba itself doesn't mean "Straits of the Great Spirit" but "Spiritual Strait". The name of the lake creature is Miisuupiishuu "The Horn Serpent" who also is the "true" owner of copper. (We just borrowed it). The reason we didn't smelt copper, just annealed it was not because we didn't know how, but because of the poisonous fumes which were considered his venom and punishment for "vandalizing" his possession.

we have a big snake that shows up and is seen every summer near the mouth of bloodvein river and lake Winnipeg. Sasquatch passes through every 6-7 years or so.
