The 1919 census gives his clan name as NaHeNeKeKah, which is a phonetic rendering of Nąinekiga, from ną, "tree, wood"; ineki, "alone", and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. This is an Upper Moiety name. As his great-great-granddaughter Amy Lonetree said, "His Ho-Chunk name has become our family surname." (van Schaick, 20)
