About Ikpsapewin

According to Sioux legend, Ikpsapewin (name translates to Willow Bark) had a brief relationship with Meriweather Lewis and bore a son by him. Meriwether continued his travels, probably unbeknownst to him that he had a son, Joseph DeSmit Lewis.

Also, unbeknownst to Meriwether Lewis, he may have been in a ceremonial wedding to Ikpsapewin aka Winona.
