There we go. Thanks, John. I had only asked my speakers so far, but since they're more like into King Soopers blueberries they didn't know the word.

Gilmore (1919/1977), Useds of Plants by teh Indians of the Missouri
River Region, p. 35, says "wipazuka". Buechel gives wi'pazukaN and

Amelanchier spp. has a wide variety of popular names, so it can be very
difficult to look up. June berry, service berry, sarvis berry, and
shadblow come to mind.

The OP form (from Gilmore) is "zhoN h.uda," i.e., z^aN(aN)' xu(u)'de.
