Name

The name "Greenhair" in Hočąk would be Hįčowįga, from , "hair, fur"; čo, a color that span the spectrum from green through blue ("breen"); -wį-, an infix indicating female gender; -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. This is known to be a name in the Wolf Clan. Her father had the name Green Hair, but her marriage certificate shows that she adopted the Anglo name "White."

Life
