George: The comments your are making about Lakota /Dakota/ Nakota under Teton Lakota really belongs here. My old friend William K. Powers says that "Wa" is a noun marker. This works for many words but not all. Bill learned to talk Lakota way back in the late 1940's at Pine Ridge as a teenager. I am sure you are familiar with his many books. I learned long ago here at Devils Lake among "D" speakers that words like sicun and nagi changed meaning with a "wa" in front. So keep up your good work. There are many "lerkers" watching and cheering you on. He miye do. Louie or should I say Douie ha,ha.
Hello, Igarcia, your comments arouse my curiosity. Who is this "George" you are addressing? My handle is "georg" (in honor of Mila Wakan) and I have posted about "sicun" that Sword said meant something like the word "conscience" though he called it "Intellect" and also (if memory does not fail) also "Protector".
