Sadie was Ho-Chunk.



Sadie was born in 1906. She passed away in 1970.


The 1910 census gives her "Indian name" as PatchKaRaWinKah, which is for Pajᵋkarawįka, "Woman Who Protects the Forest," from pač, "timber, forest"; kará, "to look after, take care of, protect"; -wį-, a feminine gender infix; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names.


She is buried in Goodbear Cemetery, Cottonville, Adams County, Wisconsin, USA. (Find a Grave)

There are a couple of problems with this from your own point of view. She has a standard Western name, so that, according to Wikitree criteria, that name, Sadie, should be the name under which she is presented. The second problem is that you introduced as her first name the distorted rendition found in the census. This means that you exchanged the name that I recovered for a funhouse mirror version. My work is apparently held in low esteem by you, that you would prefer the naive scribblings of a census-taker to my analysis based on my Lexicon of 73,000 entries, every one of which I made myself. You should refer this case to your colleague for arbitration, since I don't think that your move here was entirely based on existing criteria nor on the best understanding and presentation of the subject of the profile.
