It may be of interest that Meskwaki mêmêkêha 'butterfly' is one of the names used traditionally for a male dog (or horse) by men of the Thunder Clan.

Hi everyone,

I am looking for references about the symbolism of butterflies in Algonquian cultures. I am interested in powwow regalia, especially for children, where this design is often represented.
Thanks in advance,
Marie-Pierre.
