OUR SPIRIT COLLABORATOR
White Bear was a chief of the Lower Yanktonais at Standing Rock and later an Indian Police Chief, better known as Tom Frosted. The deceased chieftain was born at Long Lake, Dakota Territory in 1859, making him 73 years of age at the time of his death. The testimonial about him draws a picture of a man and a leader working for the welfare of the Indians, and at the same time building bridges of peace towards the white man.
White Bear is now speaking from the spirit world. Visit us and read his messages - josteinstrommenfoundation.org

Old Chief Passes Away Early Tuesday Morning
Last of Heriditary Yanktoni Chieftains, White Bear or Thos. Frosted, South Happy Hunting Grounds After Active Government Service Life
The last of the heriditary Yanktoni Chieftains, Mato-ska, or White Bear, better known to white men as Thomas Frosted, passed away at his spacious log cabin on the banks of the meandering Porcupine creek, six miles north of Fort Yates. He sought out the Happy Hunting Grounds early Tuesday morning after a lingering illness which consumed the old Chieftains health to the very marrow. Frosted has lived a very interesting life in the land of the once powerful Sioux. Born and reared on the prairie among his people he led the life of a Sioux until early manhood at which time he became a friend of the whites and lived thereafter near the agency here.
He served the "Grandfather" (Uncle Sam) in the role of Indian Policeman for more than two score years and at the time of his resignation was chief of that organization. White people must credit with due respect such a man who would join the white man and become a police official over his brothers who were for the most part at that time at war with the government. The deceased chieftain was born at Long Lake, Dakota Territory in 1859, making him 73 years of age at the time of his death; his father was known as Standing Bull and his mother, Singing. He vividly recalled on frequent occasions the well known and much written about battle of Kildeer Mountains, in which General Sibley's troops participated. Frosted was then but a boy. As a boy in his late teens he attended Hampton Institute in Virginia where he learned the occupation of a carpenter and on his return here was for many years assistant carpenter at the agency. He built many structures, including school buildings and churches for the Indian People.
