Biography

Birth

Emma was born about 1871. She is the daughter of Charles Blowsnake and Lucy Goodvillage.

Name

Her Hocąk clan name was given as ChakShipEWinKah (van Schaick), which is for Caxšebᵋwiga, "Eagle Woman", from caxšep, "Eagle"; -wį-, a feminine gender infix; -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. This is a Thunderbird Clan name.

She was also known simply as "the Woman" (ENooKahKah = Hinųkąga) (1905 census)

Marriages

She was briefly married to a Mr. Batiste (source: van Schaick), then to Mr. Goodbear, after which she had married an older man named "Walking Priest" who was born in 1854, and lived on the reservation in Nebraska.
