The way to the meaning of the word Iowa is through the Ioway. Ioway is the French transcription of Ayuway, which is what the Illini and Meskwaki called the tribe. The roots of this word only get more twisted. Ayuway is actually an alteration of what the Dakota called the tribe: Ayuxba (AH-you-khbah), which is believed to mean “sleepy ones.” Ayuxba to Iowa: the “sleepy ones.”
The Ioway tribe do not refer to themselves as the Ioway, but Baxoje (BAH-kho-jay), a name believed to come from what the Otoe called the tribe. The Otoe and Ioway sometimes camped with one another. Once, the Ioway camp was covered in ashy snow. The Otoe called the group baxoje, “grey snow” or “ashy snow-heads.” Source.
Iowa is part of the disputed route of the oil pipeline, the subject of a First Peoples protest, which is mostly not in the news.
