Niatum is the son of Dorothy Patsey Cullivan, daughter of Francis Patsey. The family settled in what is now Port Hadlock, WA (Twana name Tsi’TS3bus) in the 19th century. His great-great grandfather Old Patsey held what is believed to be the last potlatch there in 1891. The name Patsey comes from Old Patsey’s Twana name, pa’tSi:s, which means digging stick.
