Albert was Ho-Chunk.




Wakjagohoyka, "Returning with Victory," is more properly rendered as Wakjeguhega, from wakjé, "victory"; guhé, "coming back (to where one started from)"; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names.

In the 1911 census, Albert's birth order name is given as NaHiKa, which is for Naxiga, Forth Born Male. This means that he had not one, but three other brothers at one time.


“The sons of Wanknaroskaka or James Blackhawk were Nojumbka, meaning The thunder who strikes the tree or John Blackhawk and Wakjagohoyka, (Returning with victory), Albert Black hawk, died July 1912, at age 20. The daughters are Chimkananewinka (She who goes on the village) born 1875 married Edwin Greengrass; Ahosojwaywinka (She whose feathers are worn) born 1881, married Arthur Cas_man, and Wakanjapinwinka (The good thunder woman), born 1886, married Charles Greengrass and lives at Trempealeau, Wisconsin.” (Jipson, 241)
