Big Bear's father, Black Powder, sketched by Paul Kane in 1847:
A follower of The Man Who Gives the War-Whoop, he was the leader of a small band of mixed Cree and Ojibwa, who wintered on the shores of Jackfish Lake in west-central Saskatchewan, and hunted bison on the plains in the spring and fall.
