A secretive sea monster from the beliefs of British Colombia in Canada. One story tells how four women were bathing in Saint Joe River and saw a huge fish and swam closer to get a better look. The four young women were never seen again but their scalps were in the lakes near the mountains that had an underwater connection to the river. The name is also used collectively to describe sea monsters in general in the myths of the Coeur d’Alene Native Americans.
