Flight-of-Geese (Nawkaw) Decora was a Native American and member of the Ho-Chunk tribe.




We know her father died in the 98th year of his life in 1833, so we may deduce that he was born in 1735. Her husband, Spoon Decorah, was said to have been born in 1729, which would make him older than her father. If she were the first born, and her father was 18 years old when she was born, she would have been born in 1753. If she was 17 when she married, this event would have taken place in 1770. Her husband would have been 41 years old at the time.


In 1832, Flight of Geese, listed as "Day-kaw-ray's Mother," lived in the Upper Barribault [Baraboo] Village, No. 3 (43.543068, -90.031376). According to the census rolls, she lived in a lodge with five other people, one male, another woman (his wife?), and three children. Her share of the annuities promised in the treaty for that year was $22.13. (John Kinzie Census Rolls)
