Hayden Lake
hnt'aq'n [Hayden Lake] was the home village of the headman st'la'm, which means "thunder" in the Spokan language. Those Coeur d'Alene who lived along the upper Spokane River had relatives among the neighboring Spokan. St'la'm was a fierce man who resisted the efforts of Father Point to convert the Coeur d'Alene into Christians in the years from 1844 to 1846. St'la'm was also chief of the large village hnch'mqinkwe' "headwaters" [Coeur d'Alene], so he was probably the most important chief of the Coeur d'Alene in the years from 1830 to 1850. Also named s'lpst'ulikhw, he was the son of the Coeur d'Alene prophet shllchł mnachalqs "circling raven".
