In Remember Your Relatives, v. I, it states, "Yanktons lived in stable kinship bands before missionaries arrived on the reservaton. Before long, families were divided when churchmen forced husbands with two wives to give up one of them. Chief Struck By The Ree may have lost several wives. According to tribal records, his first wife, Tatehenaptewin, (Whirlwind Buffal Woman) either died or shared her well-knwon husband with three other wives.
My question is; The spelling of her Dakota name does not seem right to me. Would not the word tatanka be in it? And upon further investigation, I found in the 1892 and 1894 ICS, Whirlwind Woman, spelled "Wamniomni Winyan and then spelled Winyan Wamnismni." Any help here would be appreciated.
Second, I found the only two ICS for Struck By The Ree that were recorded and attached them to my tree. He died in 1888 and they started the ICS in 1886.
His wife here, in the 1886 ICS, is translated as "Carroin." Upon studying the handwriting it could also be "Canoin." In the 1887 ICS, the translation of her name is "Canain" but again, after studying the handwriting it looks like "Canoin."
Thanks again for any assistance on the correct translations of either of these names.
In the name Tatehenaptewin, tate means wind or whirlwind, but you are right, tatanka should be in it.
In the name Wamniomni, I know tha Wamni means eagle, so there is definately something wrong with the translations.
Hey Jimmy! How are ya!!! I just wanted to tell you that you are appreciated for all you do....
This name above reminds me of the conversation with Grandmother I mentioned before were we discussed the word WaSu.. me saying Wa - Snow and Su - Seeds.... Snow Seeds??? Grandma was amused at that one... since it is HAIL.. not snow seeds... So my wondering is if Wa in the name is Snow and of course Mni is Water... something along those lines?... well I am operating on very little sleep so I dont know that I could be of any help to anyone but found it interesteding enough to add two cents...lol
I was wondering about Eagle women in Dan Madlons trees who was the daughter of Two Lance and she had a brother Two Lance II and sibling Two Hawks. I know of the two Lance II family with Amelia Walking Blanket wife. But all the other stories say Eagle Women is the daughter of Struck by the Ree. Two lance was also Two Arrows, Two Spears and one of his other names was drags the stone. Amelia Walking Blanket had a brother Feather Earring and she is listed on Cenus born in Minnesota. There are some Two Lances and Feather Earrings listed on Morman and Karrdals list of clients. Mrs Galpin who is listed as chief of standing Rock who signed a treaty had the Indian name of one of Struck by the Rees daughters. So who does she belong to Struck by the Ree or Two Lance I. Or could this be the same person "Help" Scararm
