“Little is known about Lilian’s mother, Julia Decora St. Cyr. She was born about 1846 near Fort Atkinson, Iowa, which was built allegedly ‘to protect the Winnebago.’ The eldest daughter of Youkaw (Queen Woman) and Baptiste “Tall” Decora, Julia’s Indian name was Naw jin pn win kaw (Pretty Hair Woman). Julia’s father was the son of Ho-Chunk civil chief Conokaw Decorah whose father was Chougeka (Wooden Spoon).” (Waggoner)
