The Hand Of The Great Spirit

    It is said that the Finger Lakes were made by the impression of the hand of the Great Spirit on central New York State. However, there are six major Finger Lakes; west to east they are Canandaigua, Keuka, Seneca, Cayuga, Owasco and Skaneateles. As told in Iroquois legend, the Great God Manitou wanted to reward the Iroquois Confederacy for their courage in battle and their devotion to the Great Spirit. He decided to bring part of their happy hunting ground down from the heavens. According to the legend, there are six Finger Lakes because the hand of Manitou slipped when he was pushing a portion of Indian Paradise down from the heavens, causing six indentations that later became the lakes.
