I think it would be fun to play around with translating these Yankton chiefs names. I wonder if someone on the Yankton Rez would have a better handle on these names. Maw-too-sa-be-kia (mato = bear, sabe = dirty, kiya = cause it to happen). Wacan-o-hi-gnan (Wakan= holy; o =in, kinyan= to fly). Wah-ha-ginga (Waksica = dish, Cika = small) Cha-pon-ka (Caponka = Mosquito) Eta-ke-nus-ke-an (Ite = face, Knaskinyan = driven crazy) To-ka-oo (Toka = enemy, O = to hit or shoot) O-ga-tee (Ozate = fork in the road or river) You-ia-san (zuya = war, s'a = continually) Wah-ta-ken-do (?) To-qui-in-too (?) Ha-sas-hah (Hasapa (?)
