Des Moines is the capital and the most populous city in Iowa.

Name
A controversial recent hypothesis using a study of Miami-Illinois tribal names concludes the word Moingona comes from mooyiiinkweena, a derogatory name which translates roughly to “the excrement-faces.” The name was apparently given to Marquette and Joliet by a tribal leader to dissuade them from doing business with a neighboring tribe. – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Des_Moines,_Iowa
