"kínwakússia" or "páxkussia" are the old Myaamia language terms for wild potatoes, also called batate. Now the shortened term kussia is used for commercial sweet potatoes. Gatschet also gives the alternate wawíxkapaxkússia with the same meaning.

Small's Flora of the Southeastern U.S. (1903), Gleason and Cronquist (1991), and Coulter's Flowering Plants and Ferns of Indiana (1899) do not mention a 'sweet potato' or 'batate' in the index or within the potato family, but simply 'wild potato' for Ipomoea pandurata, which is a different, wild-occurring species. Ipomoea batata is a widely cultivated, commerically grown species, native to Central or South America.
