The Maidu Gave Natomas Its Name

“Natomas” is a Maidu word meaning north place or upstream people.


  1. Well its good know that it doesn’t mean “I beat my wife and neglect my children but give my Hummer nightly sponge baths.”

  2. Most people knew the proper meaning of Natomas, it was only some bogus writer from a third rate paper to claim otherwise, thanks for posting this, maybe Fernandez will read this and learn a lesson, he seems like a novice writer, trying to be funny and to denigrate a community is weak, even worse is to make up a lie about the meaning of a word, but when one writes for a sloppy paper, I guess it is tolerated.
