Waruhaewinkaw is an attempt to phonetically render the name Warúxewįga, "She Chases Them Off," a Wolf Clan personal name. (Foster, Dorsey) This is from wa-, a prefix meaning, "it, them"; rúxe, "to chase"; -wį-, a feminine gender infix; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. Also known as Mrs. Asa Coleman.
