English term or phrase: Dancing Lion
As a name
Deborah
misi-pisiw nimihew
Explanation:
misi-pisiw = lion
nimihew = dancing

If you want to reverse the word order (nimihew misi-pisiw), I wouldn't stop you. "Dancing" might be some other derivative of the word "nimihew", but I don't believe it would be practical to wait for somebody else to give you another version.

Good luck!
