Katema is the changed spelling of the word Katama which comes from a Wampanoag tribe word meaning "crab-fishing place.” However it is also the name of a harbour in Edgartown where I spent my childhood summers since 1944. Every few hours, the tide changes direction. Instead of having one opening to the sea, it has two openings. Currents can be rising from two directions, or falling when the current is moving either direction”.
