Hočąk Syllabic Text — The Precepts of Jasper Blowsnake, Part I

narrated by Jasper Blowsnake


    
Winnebago V, #12: 1   Winnebago V, #6: 128

English Translation


There are two letters in the syllabic alphabet used here that are eccentric (probably old fashioned):

H = x
b = l

This orthography changes back to the standard form on pages 11 and 12, but is inconsistent thereafter.


 

Winnebago V,  #12, Heading  
1   WaK Kidi Kℒ.* Ao Ao Ki Ko ℒ ayi ℒe doAo no n.
"Wąkšígᵋra hohokigura,† airešųnųną.
  "The people they are really growing themselves," they would always say.

* frequently, the spelling is awkward and inconsistent. In this case, WaK should be rended as wK.
† < ho-ho-ki-gu-ra, where the stem is hogu, with the reflexive infix -ki- inserted. The initial ho- is emphatic reduplication.


 

wo n Hi ℒe Ai Ao Ki Ko ℒ  
Woną́ǧiré hihokigura. Jasper Blowsnake
War you grow yourselves.
