When it was founded near James Bay, residents of Kashechewan chose the community’s name: “Keeshechewan,” meaning, in Cree, “Where the water flows fast.” However, when the sign for the new post office arrived, it was misspelled as “Kashechewan,” and this became the official name of the community. This official name has no real meaning in the Cree language.
