Jipson says on the testimony of Winneshiek descendants, "“The elder Winneshiek, Ma-wa-ra-ga … wife’s name was Wa-ko-pee-nee-wee-ga. She was said to have been a sister to White Cloud, the so-called Winnebago Prophet, of Black Hawk War fame.” (Jipson, 211)
Waggoner adds further (29b), "Winneshiek’s involvement was grounded in kinship, as his maternal grandfather was a Sauk man and his maternal uncle, White Cloud (known as 'the Winnebago Prophet'), was Black Hawk’s principal spokesperson. The Ho-Chunk’s avuncular kinship system imparts a close relationship between a mother’s son and her brother that entails obligations on both sides."
