Welcome to the forum luggite!

In answer to your question, I'm not sure it has a specific meaning ... just the name of a location, possibly a location of respect by the local tribe ... an example would be something like "Adamsville" in the English language, just a name for a location, not necessarilly having a translation of sorts ...

Here are a few web-sites with info.

Nana told Adams the canyon was called Sno-Ta-Hay by the Tchihene people.

In this above url
Jim Chase related fron Chief Nana as being just the name of the place. Another researcher discovered, in reading the life story of Nino Cochise, that SNO-TA-HAY only meant "Just Lying There". Probably meaning gold in abundance lying in the canyon-"just lying there" Byerts does not mention SNO-TA-HAY in his text nor do other early accounts.

Other than these web sites, you can do a google search which may yield more results. Hope this helps. Ron
