Sakihtanohkweha authored two versions, dated 1912 and 1913; only the 1912 version is translated. A note regarding "clans known to Harry Lincoln" can be found at the end of that translation. On the first page of Sakihtanohkweha's 1913 text Michelson notes, "This is a version of lodge-boy thrown away. The first part is nearly identical with the version written by her in the fall of 1912." On page 42-61 of the same text is a different story by Bill Leaf.
