The Ihanktonwanna Or Yanktonai





The Yanktonai are divided into the Upper and Lower Yanktonai, the latter
being known as the Hunkpatina, Those-camping-at-one-end (or
horn)-of-the-tribal-circle.

The Upper Yanktonai geutes are as follows: 1, Tcan-ona (Can ona),
Shoot-at-trees, or Wazi-kute, Shooters-among-the-pines; from these the
Ho-he or Asiniboin have sprung. 2, Takini, Improved-in-condition (as a
lean animal or a poor man). 3, Cikcitcena (Siksicena),
Bad-ones-of-different-sorts. 4, Bakihon (Bakihon),
Gash-themselves-with-knives. 5, Kiyuksa, Breakers (of the law or custom);
see Mdewakantonwan gens number 1. 6, Pa-baksa, Cut-heads; some of these
are on Devils Lake reservation, North Dakota. 7, Name forgotten.

The following are the gentes of the Lower Yanktonai, or Hunkpatina: 1,
Pute-temini, Sweat-lips; the gens of Maxa-bomdu or Drifting Goose. 2,
Gun-iktceka (Sun ikceka), Common dogs. 3, Taquha-yuta (Tahuha-yuta),
Eat-the-scrapings-of-hides. 4, San-ona (San-ona),
Shot-at-some-white-object; this name originated from killing an albino
buffalo; a Hunkpapa chief said that refugees or strangers from another
tribe were so called. 5, Iha-ca (Iha-sa), Red-lips. 6, Ite-xu (Ite-gu),
Burned-face. 7, Pte-yute-cni (Pte-yute-sni), Eat-no-buffalo-cows.
