I am writing about Henry Heth, Confederate General who had served on the plains who in the 1850s. He was a friend of Kiowa chief Tohausen. According to Heth’s memoirs, he was given the name “Yo-ba-me-atz” (as he related it). Does anyone know what this means, or how I can find out? There aren’t many Kiowa speakers left, but hopefully many of them read NRO. Please send to [email protected]. Thanks!
