Wekiwa or Wekiva?
So, which is it? This has confused me for a while now.
I stumbled onto this YouTube video, and at around 2:10 into the video he explains very succinctly:
- “Wekiwa” and “Wekiva” are both Indian words.
- “Wekiwa” means “Water flowing from the ground, or a spring”
- “Wekiva” means “Water flowing above the ground”
Therefore, when referring to the spring, or park, it’s “Wekiwa”. When referring to the river itself, it’s “Wekiva”.
WONDER NO LONGER.
