The Wenonah - Craftsmen Influenced Decor

The hotel's logo and namesake is Wenonah.

Princess Wenonah was a native Dakota woman, and was a favorite in her tribe and in the city of Keoxa, which is now known as Winona. In the Dakota language, the word we-no-nah means ‘first-born daughter, so it was very important that she married the ideal man. The man was chosen by her father, who was unwilling to let her marry a man of her own choosing. Princess Wenonah would not agree, and her only option to escape the marriage was to end her own life. She climbed the bluffs, to a place now known as Maiden Rock, and threw herself over the edge. This act is known as the ‘lover’s leap’ and has made such an extreme impact on our city that it is still talked about today.
