Wau-kou--or the snake--a Winnebago. No. 35 represents Wau-kon-ha-kaw--the snake skin. Wau-kon, in Winnebago is snake; and Ha-kaw, skin. This however is the snake, skin and all. He wears his name painted on his face and around his neck. He is a fierce warrior; and like the Winnebagoes, generally, a man ready for fight.
