I know this was posted a long time ago, so I don't know if anyone will see this but I've been working on my family tree and it also traces back to Pierre Racet.

I wanted to let you know that "Une Otchipwa" is actually French for a (female) Odjibwa or Chippewa. The research I've done says that Otchipwa is Algonkian for "to pucker" and they think the tribe might've been called this in reference to the puckered seams on their moccasins. So Pierre's wife was not named Une Otchipwa, her name is unknown so she has been referred to as simply "a Chippewa/Odjibwa/Odjibwe woman"
