Chief Gall (not an actor)
Jeanine says: I am most proud of and connected to my grandfather Chief Gall. More information can be found on him since he was an intrical part of Custer's Last Stand and he was also half brother to Sitting Bull and best friend to Crazy Horse.
Other Standing Bear actors found in IMDb:
Jeff Standing Bear (Jeanine doesn't know who Jeff Standing Bear is, he could possibly be a relative that she is unaware of)
Chief Standing Bear (Jeanine says: There are two Chief Standing Bears. I am related to Chief Henry Standing Bear. The other Chief is of the Ponca tribe, whom I am not related to. Because the IMDb doesn't give his first name, this could be either one. I don't know that much about my great uncle Henry Standing Bear, only that he was the one to ask that Polish artist to make the Crazy Horse monument in the Black Hills, which continues today)
