Jąpakaraciwįga was born in 1807 somewhere in what is now Illinois. (1900 census) At the time it was part of Indiana Territory.
The name Chumpahkahrahchewinkaw is for Jąpakaraciwįga, from jąp, "lightning"; ha-, a superessive applicative, meaning "on something" or "over something" (the /h/ is lost due to internal sandhi); -kara-, an infix meaning, "one's own"; ci, "lodge, house, home"; -wį-, a feminine gender infix; -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. However, the name may have a double meaning: ha-kara-ci is the same as hakaráci, "to take up a challenge, to give something another try, to take a chance at", so that the name might also mean "She Takes Up the Challenge of Lightning."
She was the mother of Mink Woman (born abt. 1828; died Oct 7, 1905) and Twin Woman (born about 1831; died Oct 10, 1900). (Linda W.)
