Winnipeg lies at the confluence of the Assiniboine and the Red River of the North, a location now known as "The Forks". This point was at one time called "the Forks" because it was near where traders arrived by river boat. Winnipeg is named after nearby Lake Winnipeg; its name comes from either Cree or Ojibwe words meaning 'muddy waters', in reference to its muddy harbour during early settlement.
