Cela Tega is the southwest Florida native (i.e.: Calusa) term for “A view from high ground”.  We used it here to symbolize “overview”.  The term was inspired from the Carib Native North American term epopopanana meaning:

this is Meeting (Epopo) + And (ana) +Place (Pa) which in Carib syntax is  Epopopanana
