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
