I got Kukulcán as the wind god. Hurakan was one of the gods that created the world.

All correct.
Actually on #2 I was looking for the particular group among the Apache, the Bedonkohe.

On #6, Huracan was the Maya's Wind God.

Thiv,

For: "5) What chief's name is very common today and even has a large city named after his people?"

I'm interpreting that as "What chief's name is well-known today. . . ."

If that's correct, then how about "Sitting Bull," with his people being the Sioux, lending their name to Sioux City, Iowa.

Cordially,

Russ

I know it's a dirty trick but #7 is also APACHE.

#9 is Tiahuanaco
