Walking Cloud was Ho-Chunk.


"My name is Mauchhewemahnigo (Walking Cloud). I was born on the Wisconsin River. I was about ten years of age when the treaty was held at Prairie du Chien [in 1825], where they fixed the boundaries between the Winnebagoes and the Chippewas and our cousins the Sioux. I went with my father to that treaty. My squaw's name is Champchekeriwinke [Jąbᵋjikerewįga] (Flash of Lightning). Her uncle was Hootschope (Four Legs). She was born at his village on Lake Winnebago. During the Black Hawk War, my father had his lodge near La Crosse. I did not go to the war; I was too young. But my brother did. His name was Seeorouspinka." (Narrative, 463)

Concerning his time of death, Reuben Gold Thwaites writes in a footnote, "Moses Paquette writes me (Black River Falls, Nov. 6, 1895) that Walking Cloud still lives; his squaw, however, is dead." (Narrative, 463 nt. 1)
