Cinąka Hųgᵋrawįga was Ho-Chunk.




Cinąka Hųgᵋrawįga, "Queen of the Lodge," was born about 1831. (1905 census)


The name Chenunkahuglawinkah can be analyzed as, činąka, "the lodge"; hųgᵋra (< hųk, "chief"; -ra, "the"); -wį-, a feminine gender infix; -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. This would give us Cinąka Hųgᵋrawįga, "Queen of the Lodge".

Old Age

"Old Grandma Decorah, mother of Charlie, Moses and Henry Decorah, appeared to be at least 100 years old (in 1895), and was so crippled and bent that she could not walk. She seemed to be well cared for by her sons." (Skavlem)


She passed away after 1905.
