Lake McDonald From Glacier Wall

Lake McDonald is known by the First Nations Ktunaxa, (a.k.a. Kootenai) Tribes People as Ya-kit Haqwilnamki (The Place Where They Dance). This is their traditional place of creation, where a spirit first taught the Kootenai people songs and circle dances. For the ancient tribes who lived in these lands so long ago, this was a sacred place for dancing and a destination for vision quests. This scene is looking west across the lake from above the Glacier Wall. Apgar Village is at the opposite end of the lake
