Amisk is Cree for Beaver.
Also known as "the Beaver of Skilligalee." Skilligalee is a Scottish word to describe oatmeal with boiling water poured over it - in reference to the basic food that the pioneers had to eat or the soupy condition of the soil in the rainy season.
Beavers are plentiful in the region and a beaver has been on the Town crest since it was incorporated as a village in 1898.
The initial idea was to have more of these statues depicting the "Beaver Family" hunting, fishing, golfing, playing hockey, playing baseball.
Amisk has been vandalized by the time of the above photos. It had damage to its tail and grafitti, including a painted on mustache.
