For more than two decades, several tribes have called for changing the name of Devils Tower, which many believe to have originated from the mistranslation of a Native American word for "bear" into "bad god." (The plural form is a separate issue: The apostrophe in "Devil's Tower" was erroneously omitted in the 1906 proclamation creating Devils Tower National Monument.) The latest effort is led by Arvol Looking Horse, a spiritual leader of the Lakota Nation, who filed a request to change the name of the butte to Bear Lodge in 2014.
