Pokagon Band Family Names


Blaire.Topash's picture

I was recently talking casually with a Myaamia person about Topash. And there's an idea from him and a linguist that it may derive from Tupashea (sp?) referring to the shimmering light from moisture or frozen dew on leaves (which is interesting in light of previous translations which mentioned "sweating"). I'd have to ask him to break down the particles again (because like I said it was just a casual conversation).
