This is the "Spy Hill". It is
located a few miles from the town of Spy
How did Spy Hill get it's name?
There are three versions as to how the district
got its name.
1. That it was so named because the Indians
used the hill to "spy out" the surrounding country to
watch for buffalo or enemy tribes.
2. Gilbert Johnson, historian, of Marchwell
states --- Spy Hill is the setting of a famous Indian legend. A
revengeful wife, who had deserted her tribe, succeeded in her determination
to massacre them. The, discovering that her former husband, the
Chief -- the Wolverine -- alone had escaped, sought him out on the
hill and there stabbed him to death. Before the survey, the hill
is said to have been called Wolverine or Butte a' Caracajar by the
Indians and Metis. ( See Sask. History Vol. 1, No. 2 1948 Bruce
3. Dr. F. O. Gilbart, former Indian missionary
and local medical practitioner at Spy Hill for 25 years, writes
-- " Years ago a band of Cree Indians made camp at the Hill.
A Sioux Indian was sent to steal some of their ponies. The Sioux
was discovered by one of the Crees, who picking up a stone, killed
the would-be thief. The Cree exclaimed "Kapakamaou" which
means "I have killed a spy" and ever after the hill was
called "Spy Hill".
