    eewanki oowaaha mni sota – inki (mni sota is the Dakota word for Minnesota which I’ve heard translated as “land where the waters reflect the sky”. How could we translate that into myaamia?)

  2. Good question iihši, if we are translating a Dakota name then maybe it would be easier to call it the Place of the Dakota Near the Mississippi River? “Šaaha + locative” ciikaahkwe mihšisiipi. Maybe David can weigh in on this one.
