INFO: (From Volume 1 History of Carbon County by Thomas D. Eckhart, 1992) Onoko was the name of an Indian Chief’s daughter who was a white settler’s lover, The irate chief accused the white man of stealing his daughter’s affection and executed the culprit by throwing him over the cliff by the falls. During this execution, Onoko hid in a clump of rhododendron bushes, and upon witnessing her lover’s doom, gave a shriek of despair before leaping from the cliff to share in her lover’s horrible fate.
