The Final Jeopardy Answer is: Great Salt Lake
Final Jeopardy Explanation
The Goshute, a Native American tribe from the western United States, referred to the Great Salt Lake as “Teittse Paa” or “Ti’tsa-pa” which translates to “bad water.” This name reflects the lake’s high salinity, making its water undrinkable. The Great Salt Lake, located in the northern part of the U.S. state of Utah, is the largest saltwater lake in the Western Hemisphere and one of the most saline bodies of water in the world. The lake is a remnant of the prehistoric Lake Bonneville and is significant for its unique ecosystem, including being a critical habitat for millions of native birds, brine shrimp, and other species. The Goshute people, like other Native American tribes, had a deep understanding and relationship with the natural environment, often naming geographical features in a way that described their characteristics or significance.
