Wau-nik-sootsh-ee-ween-kaw was Ho-Chunk.


Good Red Bird Woman was born about 1795. She passed away about 1835.


The name "Red Bird Woman" is a translation of Wanįkšujᵋwįga, which is from wanįk, "bird"; šuč (> sujᵋ)', "red"; -wį-, a feminine gender infix; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. Bird names belong to the Upper Moiety, which would mean that her marriage to Chagekaka violated the rule of marrying into the opposite moiety.
