Nąhasą́ciga was Ho-Chunk.


The name Nah-ha-sauch-e-ka is a fairly good phonetic rendering of Nąhasą́ciga, "Goes Beyond the Trees," a Thunderbird Clan name.

De la Ronde says that he also went by the name "Young De-Kaury," but was most usually called "Rascal De-Kau-ry" on account of his "trickish character." (347)


In 1832, "Rascal Day-kay-ray" was living in the Upper Barribault [Baraboo] Village, No. 3 (43.543068, -90.0313761), where he was living with three women and no children. He was collecting an annuity of $14.75. (Kinzie Rolls, Upper Barribault, note 11)
