The Oglala





The first list of Oglala gentes was obtained in 1879 from Reverend John
Robinson and confirmed in 1880 by a member of the tribe. These gentes are
as follows: 1, Payabya, Pushed-aside. 2, Tapicletca (Tapisleca), Spleen
(of an animal). 3, Kiyuksa, Breaks-his-own (marriage custom). 4, Wajaja
(Wazaza. See the Siha-sapa list of gentes). 5, Ite-citca (Ite-sica),
Bad-face, or Oglala-qtca (Oglala-hca), Real Oglala. 6, Oyuqpe (Oyuhpe);
identical with Oiyuqpe of the next list. 7, Wagluqe (Wagluhe). Followers
or Loafers. These were probably the earlier divisions of the Oglala, but
by 1884 considerable segregation had been accomplished, as shown by the
following list furnished by Reverend W.J. Cleveland: 1, Ite-citca
(Ite-sica), Bad-face, under Maqpiya-luta, Scarlet Cloud (Red Cloud). 2,
Payabyeya, Pushed-aside (under Tasunka-kokipapi, They-fear-even-his-horse;
wrongly rendered Man-afraid-of-his-horses). 3, Oyuqpe (Oyuhpe), Thrown
down or unloaded. 4, Tapicletca, Spleen (of an animal). 5, Pe-cla
(Pe-sla), Baldhead. 6, Tceq-huha-ton (Ceh-huha-ton), Kettle-with-legs. 7,
Wablenitca (Wablenica), Orphans. 8, Pe-cla-ptcetcela (Pe-sla-ptecela),
Short-baldhead. 9, Tacnahetca (Tasnaheca), Gopher. 10, I-wayusota,
Uses-up-by-begging-for, Uses-up-with-the-mouth. 11, Wakan (Wakan),
Mysterious. 12a, Iglaka-teqila (Iglaka-tehila), Refuses-to-move-camp. 12b,
Ite-citca, Bad-face (as number 1). 13, Ite-citca-etanhan
(Ite-sica-etanhan), From-bad-face, Part-of-bad-face. 14, Zuzetca-kiyaksa
(Zuzeca kiyaksa), Bit-the-snake-in-two. 15, Watceonpa (Wace-onpa),
Boasters. 16, Watcape (Wacape), Stabber. 17, Tiyotcesli (Tiyocesli),
Dungs-in-the-lodge. 18 and 19, Wagluqe, Followers or Loafers. 20, Oglala,
Scattered-her-own. 21, Ieska-tcintca (Ieska-cinca), Interpreter's sous,
Half-bloods.

According to Mr Cleveland the whole Oglala tribe had two other names,
Oyuqpe, Thrown-down or unloaded, and Kiyaksa, Bit-it-in-two.
