Shawano is the seat of Shawano County, Wisconsin. The name "Shawano" was taken from the local Indians. Chief Sawanoh, meaning South, was the Menominee chief whose band often lived on the shores of what is now Shawano Lake, which was known to the Chippewa and Menominee Indians as "Lake to the South", which in shortened form became "Shawanah", and was later changed to Shawano.
