First Nations people from the early 19th century were the first to report sightings of Ogopogo. The Okanakane Tribe called it Naitaka or Ogopogo, which in Salish means Lake Demon. Today she is known as Ogopogo, a 40-50-foot-long sea serpent, a left over from a prehistoric age. It really hasn't been determined she really exists or not, even though the numbers of sightings and photographs. Unfortunately, she's just a legend and most sightings can be explained.
Hopefully, there will be more sightings as summer approaches.
