I believe this is the father of Osotewin "SmokeWoman" also known as Grandma White Tallow.
See below the names in bold I am looking for translation. What is wife's name?

Is Hejate "Forked Horn" or "Forked Teeth" And what does Hanffetwinapewin translate to?

Thank you all for this information. I do have a copy of the Picotte tree done by Fr Madlon and have found some inconsistencies. Though, it is chock full of leads in order to pursue documents and I am greatly appreciative to have it for my research.
My grandfather (Clement Smith, Jr.) mother's maiden name was Julia Benoist. Her sister and my great-aunt, was Louisa Benoist. Louisa Benoist married Charles Francois Picotte and Charles' father was Honore Picotte. This is my connection to the Picotte's.

Forked Teeth is correct. According to An English-Dakota Dictionary, by Williamson, Hi = tooth and can be used in the plural. Zate = Forked. And I believe, the J sometimes has the sound of Z as in wajina.
But the other name for his wife is perplexing as I have not seen anything similiar. I will look at the original of this document to see if perhaps there was an error in the handwriting translation. But in the meantime, should anyone have an idea, that would be great!
I do not believe that the dakotas used the letter f in their grammer and language. You might try seeing if ther may beany information on them at the Blue Cloud Abbey near Marty SD. forked tooth was the grandfather of William Bean aka Chief Blue cloud. there is a book als ocalled the The 8th Landing, Lewis and Clark Meet the Yankton Sioux Indians.

Thanks Hermin and Big Jon for this valuable info and Hermin I just want to let you know that you seem to always come in with the home runs. You are great professional, Information Specialist. SPECIALIST with caps!
There is a thread under Lineal Descendant called Abe Crawford and the name Hanyetuyeyawin(I don't think I spelled it the same as Louie has on his reply) is mentioned. There is some lineage shown and her name means Passing in the Night. You might want to check that post out to see if possibly it is the person you are looking for.
