Meaning & History

Name of a city in CALIFORNIA, from Ojibwe pa-sa-de-na, meaning "valley of the valley" "crown of the valley" "key of the valley" or "hill of the valley". Although the Ojibwe had no ties to Southern California, Dr. Thomas Elliott contacted a missionary friend in Michigan who had worked with the Minnesota Chippewa Native Americans and submitted this name.
