Mahkeemeeteuv was known as the "Grizzly Bear" but his name means "Bear's Oil". However, he was also referred to as "Kaush-kau-no-naive" which apparently was the name of his father. Grizzly Bear is the actual translation of his father's name. He was an outstanding leader and orator and served under the direct command of Tomah. Was chosen as the Speaker for the Chiefs after Tomah's death. He was the father of Kinopoway and Wapimen, who became leaders of their own Bands.

Big Elk, Elder (Ongpatonga)

( Tribe : Omaha )

( Painting by Georg Catlin )
Big Elk

c.1765-1846. Big Elk became principal chief of the Omahas on the death of Washinggusaba (Black Bird) in 1800; in 1821 and 1837, he traveled to Washington, D.C., to negotiate treaties and became known among whites as a spellbinding orator. He was the principal Omaha chief during the first sizable Euro-American migration through Omaha Terretory by Mormons, who were traveling from Illinois to their eventual destination on the shores of the Great Salt Lake. Big Elk was probably born in the principal village of the U'maha (which has been anglicized as "Omaha"), midway between contemporary Omaha, Nebraska, and Sioux City, Iowa. As a young man he earned a reputation for courage in war, primarily against the Pawnees. Big Elk became very popular and was known for his fairness in making decisions - unlike his predecessor Black Bird, a tyrant who was said to have poisoned some warriors who dis agreed with him. Charles Bird King painted Big Elk's portrait in Washington, D.C., during his first visit in 1821; George Catlin painted his portrait in 1833. Big Elk was head chief of the Omahas until 1843, when he went hunting alone one winter day and killed a deer with a tomahawk (which was unusual, since most Omahas used guns by this time). On his return from the hunt, Big Elk caught fever and died three days later. He was buried in Bellevue, Nebraska, at a site that the whites called Elk Hill. The Omahas call it Onpontonga Xiathon, meaning, "the Place Where Big Elk [Onpontonga] Is Buried". He was succeeded by his son Big Elk, younger, who was followed by Joseph LaFlesche as the Omahas' principal chief.
