John Baptiste's mother was named as Cho-na-ka-we-gah, which is for Conąkewįga, "Blue Back Woman." (Marriage Rec.) This name is found in both the Bear and Wolf Clans. It derives from, co, "a color that spans the spectrum from green to blue"; nąké, "back part of anything; back of a human body"; -wį-, a feminine gender infix; -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names."
