Hąpįwįga was born in 1819 somewhere in Wisconsin, then part of the Michigan Territory.
The 1900 census gives her name as Ha pin win kaw, which is for Hąpįwįga, from Hąp, "Day, Light"; pį, "good, nice, beautiful, etc."; -wį-, a feminine gender suffix; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. This is probably an Upper Moiety name, and given the cross moiety marriage requirement, her husband, Jacob Russell's father, was probably of the Lower, or Earth, Moiety.
She passed away after 1900, probably on the Winnebago Reservation in Thurston, Nebraska.
