White Bear Lake was of course named for its main lake, but the name of the lake comes with its own unique history. Carl T. Thayer wrote in Indian Legends of Minnesota that there was once a Sioux princess that fell for a Chippewa Brave. The Sioux chief only agreed to peace and marriage if the brave were to display an act of true bravery. When the princess was cornered by a great white bear, the brave quickly jumped in to defend her. Both the bear and the brave perished, and it was said that both of their spirits wandered the lake’s island.
