Keewaydin neighborhood, like Minnehaha and Hiawatha neighborhoods, received its name from an Ojibwe legend mentioned in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem, The Song of Hiawatha. "Keewaydin" is Ojibwe for "northwest wind," or "the home wind."
The Keewaydin neighborhood is located near Lake Nokomis, from Minnehaha Parkway on the north to 54th Street East on the south, and from Cedar Avenue South on the west to 34th Avenue South on the east. Most of Lake Nokomis is within the neighborhood's boundaries.
