“Saba”

[From my new “Proud, Strong and Beautiful” Collection: https://opensea.io/collection/proudstrongbeautiful]

Saba is a Native American place name meaning “the rock.”

Pronounced say-ba, Saba is the name of an island in the Caribbean.

It was initially inhabited by the Taino Indians before the Arawak tribe settled there around 800 A.D.

They named the island Siba, meaning “the rock,” likely because of the island’s small size and circular shape.

“Hateya”

[From my new “Proud, Strong and Beautiful” Collection: https://opensea.io/collection/proudstrongbeautiful]

Hateya is a Native American girl’s name.

It is a modern derivation of the Miwok word “ha t’ej,” meaning “press with the foot” or “make tracks.”

Many sites state that it means “footprints in the sand,” but this could be an embellishment.

It’s possible that Hateya could be an anglicization of a longer Miwok name that did have this meaning.

“Keme”

[From my new “Proud, Strong and Beautiful” Collection: https://opensea.io/collection/proudstrongbeautiful]

Keme is a Native American name meaning “secret.”

Keme derives from the Algonquin word Kiim, meaning “secret.”

Some sites state that Keme means “thunder,” but this is not true.

This mistake is often attributed to a typo in a baby book. While Keme was traditionally used as a boy’s name, it is pronounced similar to the feminine Kimmy.
