Minnehaha is a fictional Native American woman documented in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s 1855 epic poem The Song of Hiawatha. She is the lover of the titular protagonist Hiawatha. The name is often incorrectly said to mean “laughing water”, though in reality it translates to “waterfall” or “rapid water” in Dakota. The statue stands in front of Hiawatha Country Store.
