Joseph's birth order name was Hagaga, "Third Son." (1893 census) His clan name was Sakewaručka, "He who Eats Raw Flesh," from saké, "to be raw"; waruč, "to eat, he eats"; and -ka, a definite article suffix used in personal names. This is an attested name in the Upper Moiety, but many names are used by clans from both moieties, as is appropriate to their clans. In this case, Joseph belonged to the Bear Clan and was named in honor of the carnivory of bears.
