Obojoki, otherwise known as the Lake Okoboji Monster, is a lake monster from East Okoboji Lake, Iowa.
The monster is described as a large aquatic animal with a head the size of a bowling ball. Its color is dark greenish brown and is known to knock people out of small boats.
Historically, Iowa was inhabited by various Algonquian Indian tribes, such as the Kickapoo, the Iowa River "Mahouea", Mascouten, Sauk and the Meskwaki (Fox). The Meskwaki (Fox) spoke of an aquatic dragon, commonly known as the Underwater Panther (Naamipeshiwa or Peshipeshiwa). Native-languages.org describes this dragon as "...A powerful mythological creature something like a cross between a cougar and a dragon. It is a dangerous monster who lives in deep water and causes men and women to drown." Some archaeologists believe that underwater panthers have been depicted as early as the Mississippian culture in the prehistoric American Southeast. The Ojibwe of the Great Lakes have their own version of the Underwater Panther known as the Mishipeshu or Mishibijiw.
