5 | Lake Superior

Lake Superior 1749. Click image for full map. The first French explorers approaching the great inland sea by way of the Ottawa River and Lake Huron referred to their discovery as le lac superieur. Properly translated, the expression means "Upper Lake," that is, the lake above Lake Huron. Kitchi-gummi, a Chippewa Indian translation, signifies Great-water or Great-lake. A Jesuit name, Lac Tracy, was never officially adopted.

An Indian name for Lake Superior was "Kitchi gami" (or "Kitchi-gummi").
