Perhaps "strike dog until (it) cries". The verb-ending and animate plural object pronoun are problematic. (Kahe'wa ?) And I was confused by your use of the instrumental/stative verb prefix ka- (by striking) with wa- (by use of knife); I'm unclear on the modulation of subject-object-verb constructions in formal sentence structure versus verb-pronoun constructions in such phrases as the example. (Ka-sunka-wakan, &etc.) But then, this not exactly my forte. I only realized it was most likely lakotaiyapi after posting; I had assumed it was something else on first glance. Interesting.... or just pasluka.
