The Moberly Lake has always been a revered site for the Danezaa people. They called it 'the Lake you can depend on,' an allusion to the bounty of the lake, where they could always find food.
Other Danezaa regarded the lake as a place of mystique. For them, it was 'the Lake with a hole through it' or 'the lake with no bottom'. According to their lore, the lake was the dwelling place of an ancient creature that came to the surface after long intervals below the water.
