Historyedit

The present site of Devils Lake was historically territory of the Dakota people However, Sisseton, Wahpeton, and Cut-Head bands of Dakotas were relocated to the Spirit Lake Reservation as a result of the 1867 treaty with the United States that established a reservation for Dakotas who had not been forcibly relocated to Crow Creek Reservation in what is now called South Dakota910 The name "Devils Lake" is a calque of the Dakota phrase mni wak’áŋ literally: spirit water,11 which is also reflected in the names of the Spirit Lake Tribe and the nearby town of Minnewaukan

The Dakota called the lake mni wak’áŋ chante, which separately translate as mni water, wak’áŋ literally "pure source" but often translated as "spirit" or "sacred", and chante heart European-American settlers misconstrued this name to mean "Bad Spirit Lake", or "Devils Lake" The "bad" referred to the high salinity of the lake, making it unfit to drink, and "spirit" meant the mirages often seen across the water The Christian concept of the devil was not present in Dakota philosophy12

The Hidatsa name is mirixubaash "sacred water"13

The first post office was founded here November 15, 1882, and originally named Creelsburg8 It was founded by Lieutenant Heber M Creel, a West Point graduate and topgraphical engineer stationed at nearby Fort Totten After resigning from the US Army, he surveyed and established the townsite

The surrounding Creel Township is named for him Its name was later changed to Creel City and expanded by the Great Northern Railway When the village was incorporated in 1884, the name was changed to City of Devils Lake and then shortened to Devils Lake112

A period of increased rainfall, beginning in the 1990s and unprecedented in the history of the state, caused the nearby lake, which has no natural outlet, to rise The surface area has quadrupled, and the higher water has resulted in the moving or destruction of over 400 houses14
