Biography

"[Spoon] was then 'living with his aged squaw,' whose name, it is said, was Gray Eagle-eye. 'His progeny, reaching to the fourth generation, were clustered about the patriarchal lodge in family wigwams.'" (Hexom, 35)

Name

Her name is hard to reconstruct in Hocak because there is more than one name for an eagle. The name Caxšebišjaxojᵋwįga would be translated as "Gray Eagle-Eye Woman."

Lineage

“Black Wolf was the uncle of Gray Eagle’s Eye, my present squaw; Dandy was her cousin …” (Narrative, 451-452)
