The Chief Solano Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, received its name from Chief Solano, the leader of the Suisuni Indian tribe, a Patwin people of the Suisun Bay region of California. He was born about 1800 and named Sem-Yeto, which means "brave or fierce hand." He was christened at Mission Solano and given the Spanish name Francisco Solano. History tells us that, as an adult, Chief Solano was about six feet seven inches tall and both handsome and brave. He became a friend and ally to General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo and was entrusted with military and peacemaking missions.
