Waka Nambe, a small but spectacular tower-like feature, is located just west of Warrior Mountain. The name is an Indian word meaning "Great Spirit Thumb" or "Hand of God" and is a refreshing break from the World War I era names of its neighbouring peaks.

It is clearly visible from Highway #40 in the vicinity of Kananaskis Lakes and from the upper lake.
