History & History Related Items

"A tragic legend. Winola, whose name means "water lily," was a daughter of an Indian chieftain. Her involvement with a white captive brought dishonor, and once while looking at her reflection in the lake, she saw an image of her father in war paint. Fresh scalps hung from the chieftain's waist, and Winola recognized the scalp of her lover, "whiter than the water lilies." Winola threw herself at the reflection, never to surface again. "
