Ghostly footsteps heard on the Washington Avenue Bridge in Minneapolis (the poet John Berryman and others have leapt to their deaths from the bridge); the unexplained geological mystery of the Devil's Kettle waterfall and pothole; the sad tale of Wenonah (also spelled Winonah, Wynonah or Winona and meaning first-born), who used a knife to take her own life near Fort Snelling when, prompted by an envious woman, a jealous suitor falsely condemned her during the Feast of the Virgins; the story of Winona, who leapt to her death near the town named after her (it was once called Keoxa) because her father would not let her marry the man she loved (are all Winonas unlucky in love?); the mischievious, monkey-like argopelter that throws sticks at people; tales of the giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan, whose statue in Brainerd is animated (there are also statues of Paul and his blue ox Babe in Bemidji); Native American stories about the wendigo, a ghoulish, insatiable, man-eating manitou that was sometimes a mutated, cannibalistic human; and the spiritual significance of the pipestone quarries in Pipestone National Monument, where the clay is stained reddish by the blood of bison (buffalo) eaten by the Great Spirit, where the first man and woman were created from the clay, where thunderbirds nest and where, beneath granite boulders, the spirits of two Native American shaman women called Tsomecostee and Tsomecostewondee dwell and may still be consulted by those who go there for their pipe clay, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Minnesota.
