The Sleeping Bear Dunes of Michigan's west are named after an Ojibwe legend of the sleeping bear. The legend tells of a great forest fire that drove wildlife into Lake Michigan. A mother bear and her two cubs were forced to swim for their lives. She survived the exhausting plunge. Her cubs did not. She finally made it back to shore and waited for her cubs that never returned. It is said the Great Spirit made the dunes and two nearby islands to commemorate their tragic story.
