    Chief Crowfoot was a chief of the Siksika First Nation. His parents, Istowun-eh'pata (Packs a Knife) and Axkahp-say-pi (Attacked Towards Home), were Kainai. His brother Iron Shield became Chief Bull. He was only five when Istowun-eh'pata was killed during a raid on the Crow tribe, and a year later, his mother remarried to Akay-nehka-simi (Many Names) of the Siksika people. The young boy was adopted by the Siksika, who gave him the name (Bear Ghost), until he could receive his father’s name.

Apiatan - Kiowa. In 1890, the Kiowa heard rumors of a "Man from the North" that had seen Jesus, had seen all the dead people, the buffalo, and the country where all the dead people lived with Jesus. He had seen rivers, good grass and plenty of food. It was the place the white people called the Happy Hunting Ground. Apiatan left in search of this man. He spent 2 yrs searching til he found the Paiute man, Wovoka, whom he interviewed and determined it was a hoax. He returned home much disappointed.
