Biography

Lineage

His first son was named, Mau-na-suntsh-ga [Mąnąksųčka], "Shakes the Earth by the Force of His Step"; his second son bore the name, Shounk-mau-no-nee-ga [Šųgᵋmąnųnįga], "Lost Dog" (probably a nickname); his third son was called, Mau-chgoo-[w]a-shiste-ga [Mąčguwašiška], "Breaks the Band [Bow] with the Force of His Feet." The male names seem to be those found in the Bear Clan.

Name

Mąčguwašiška is from mąčgu, "bow"; wašíš, "to break something having length by pressure or pushing, not leaving a clean break"; and -ka, a definite article used in personal names.

Residence

Two of these brothers may have been living in the Koshkonong Village of their forefathers under synonymous names, which occur frequently enough. Mąčgúnąšéška and Mągíksųčka were both living in that village in 1832. (Kinzie) Mąnąksųčka/Mągíksųčka received no allotment payment, probably because he was a minor living in a lodge with two women and one child (himself). (Kinzie)
