Paciwin is the Cree name of Senator John B. Tootoosis from Poundmaker First Nation. He was a crusader for Indigenous rights since the turn of the century. He travelled many parts of the world advocating for his people. A Senator, an Ambassador, a true leader of Indigenous people who will never be forgotten. In honour of being such a strong leader for Indigenous people for most of his life, it was decided that his name, Paciwin, would be used for one of the neighbourhoods in North Battleford.
Paciwin is located east of downtown, and northwest of Yellow Sky, the area formerly known as the Southeast Quadrant.
