Šųgᵋmąnųnįga was Ho-Chunk.




His first son was named, Mau-na-suntsh-ga [Mąnąksųčka], "Shakes the Earth by the Force of His Step"; his second son bore the name, Shounk-mau-no-nee-ga [Šųgᵋmąnųnįga], "Lost Dog" (probably a nickname); his third son was called, Mau-chgoo-[w]a-shiste-ga [Mąčguwąšiška], "Breaks the Band [Bow] with the Force of His Feet." The male names seem to be those found in the Bear Clan.


Šųgᵋmąnųnįga is from šųk, "dog"; mąnų́nį, "to lose one’s way, to be lost"; and -ga, a definite article suffix used for personal names. This may be a nickname rather than a Bear Clan name.
