Elakala Falls (A Native American Legend)

Elakala Falls (A Native American Legend)

The name of the waterfalls comes from a Native American legend, although several significantly different versions exist. According to one account it involves a princess named Elakala who threw herself over the edge of the first waterfall when her lover scorned her. Another account of the legend involves a Massawomee warrior named Elakala who was girl-shy and fell to his death from the falls while being pursued by two women of his tribe.Similar legends exist for many waterfalls in the eastern United States, and there is of course no way to confirm these stories.
