In August 1878, Chief Mosquito signed an adhesion to Treaty 6 at Battleford after taking over the Band from Little Chief. Grizzly Bear’s Head originally signed Treaty 4 under Tepee Hoska at Cypress Hills in 1877. The Band migrated to the Battleford area after Tepree Hoska died in 1882. Both Bands merged in 1951. After signing an adhesion to Treaty 4, Lean Man Band settled in the Treaty 6 area south of Battleford in May 1882. In 1931 the Lean Man Band’s population decreased to a membership of one and was then merged with Mosquito Grizzly Bear’s Head.
