Western genealogies with Christian name, middle name, and surname formats are ill suited to Native American naming systems. A sibling of Wild Goose would not be named "Wild Goose," but such a "surname" has to be used as a "peg" to express important family relationships.
Waggoner's collection of affidavits from 1838-39 (62a) shows that Wihaga was the niece of Wild Goose. This makes her a cousin of Heigh-noh, a daughter of Wild Goose. (Waggoner, 61a) As cousins, they share the father of Wild Goose as their grandfather. However, owing to the ambiguity of the term "niece" we do not know whether Wild Goose's father was her maternal or paternal grandfather. We do not know whether this sibling of Wild Goose was male or female. A female identity was arbitrarily assumed because the Hochunks have an avunculate in which a sister's children have a strong bond to her brothers. The children of a man's brothers view their paternal uncles as "little fathers," a much weaker emotional bond.
