The name Che-wy-scha-ka may be for Čiwaíšjaga, "He Scouts Out the Lodge," an unattested name. Cf. Čiwaižega, "He who Makes One Abandon the Lodge and Flee," a personal name in the Bird Clan.
Why two of John Waukon's sons adopted the white surname "Smith" is unknown.
Hexom says (29), "John Waukon has one daughter, Mrs. Henry Big Fire, and two sons, Henry Smith ('Hunting Man') and John Smith ('Che-wy-scha-ka') still living [as of 1913]."
