I'll add to Shannon's contribution by adding another form widely attested in
Assiniboine, namely, zitka'na ~ ziNtka'na (bearing in mind that when it - or any
vowel-final word - is said in isolation the final vowel is whispered). My
primary consultant's Indian name is Zitka'na tho wiNyaN 'Bluebird Woman'.
