She was born in 1890 almost certainly in Wisconsin.
The 1910 census gives her "Indian name" as GeSkaWinKah, which is for jįskawįga, "Striking White," a Thunderbird name referencing lightning. It is from, jį "to strike"; ska, "white"; -wį-, a feminine gender infix; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names.
The Wisconsin Historical Society records another of her names as being "Clear Sky" (Kéračóga ?).
