Cha-ge-ka-ka Decora was a Native American and member of the Ho-Chunk tribe.
"In 1836, the Indians had the misfortune of losing the best of their chiefs, Scha-chip-ka-ka [Čaxšépsgaga], or De-kau-ry. His death occurred April 20, at the age of ninety, at his village ... He was succeeded by his son, called by the whites Little De-kau-ry, whose Indian name was Cha-ge-ka-ka; and he did not long survive, dying six months after his father. He was succeeded by his brother, Ho-pe-ne-scha-ka [Xopį́nįskága], or White French." (de la Ronde, 355-356)
