General comment

Tutelo kuweya hukteⁿ´heⁿ is most likely not cognate. A partial analog of the Ofo form would have to be assumed, with -hę derived from *-hi with nasalization from the preceding vowel. In fact, Tutelo ę virtually always comes from , very rarely . In Hidatsa the simplex appears uninflected (3s only). Full inflection is found with the vertitive and other prefixes. Note that Lakota 1p is ųkípi with no glottal stop or aspiration.
