Paasiaja (Poosioho, Paasi-aha, Paasi-ahá, Paatsiaja)
"Paasiaja" (also spelled Poosioho, Paasi-aha, Paasi-ahá, Paatsiaja, Patsiaehé,
and other ways) is an alternate name for the Andoke tribe,
and the one most commonly used by the people themselves. It means "axe people" in their own language, referring to their skill
at crafting stone axes.
