The Wenonah (pdf) neighborhood is named after Hiawatha’s mother, the daughter of Nokomis, from a legend that Henry Wadsworth Longfellow attributes to Ojibwe people in his poem, The Song of Hiawatha. Before 1900, the neighborhood was a major American Indian center.
Its borders are 54th Street E on the North, 34th Avenue S on the East, Crosstown 62 on the South, and Cedar Avenue and Lake Nokomis on the West.
Wenonah is served the Nokomis East Neighborhood Association.
