- found: Siouan Languages Web site (John Koontz at the University of Colorado), Aug. 10, 2004 ("... the Wisconsin branch of the Winnebago is currently lobbying for Hocak as the English term for the tribe and its language. This is actually a representation of Hochank (NetSiouan Hoĉąk), written in a modern Siouanist Orthrography, but shorn of the hacek over the c and the ogonek (nasal hook) under the a. The Hocak Language Project uses the diacritics, but they ... consider it OK to omit them ... the term Winnebago is well established in English and hasn't any offensive meaning ... so it seems harmless and reasonable as an English term for the tribe and its language.")
