Nancy was Ho-Chunk.




Her Hocąk name was ChePoCheWinKah, which is unattested, but may be for Čibočéwiga, "She Blows Off a Piece of the Lodge," from či, "lodge"; bočé, "to blow off a piece"; -wį-, a feminine gender infix; -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. This name appropriate to Thunderbirds, the clan to which she belonged.
