"Ahokana"

Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

you have an unknown grave listed as "Ahokana". I wonder if it actually is supposed to be "A-HoKa-Hey" or something similar... it is a Sioux phrase commonly thought to mean "it is a good day to die" but in fact means "let's go" or "let's roll" "let's get this done" or "let's do this thing". The antlers and the little animal skull etc makes me think of a Native American shrine of leaving offerings as sort of a prayer.

I think that grave belongs to Jan Iris, he died in the 1980's and lived on the "hokahey" land trust up Miller creek.
