Gam,ler 2anner <(dit)ta)ga#)win)nin, Ata*awinin or (tahaoman=. Gam,ler 2anner was the eldest son of Chief Picheito 2anner. .e was pro,a,ly ,orn in the 0ed ;ake area of Minnesota since the 0ed ;ake $and moved freely ,ack and forth across the international ,order. Gam,ler was the grandson of Bohn 9+alcon: 2anner <2he 4hite 1ndian= and his Saulteau@ wife, 0ed Sky of the Morning. ;ike his cousin <also Bohn 2anner=, Gam,ler had served in the American Army during the Civil 4ar. +ollowing the war he ,ecame a trader in the Iu%Appelle ;akes region. .e rarely traded at +ort ?llice, preferring to do ,usiness further north at +ort Pelly. 1n earlier years Gam,ler, along with his father Picheito, had ,een deeply involved in the freighting ,usiness ,etween St. Paul, Minnesota and 4innipeg. Gam,ler was one of the Plains)E6i,way%s most noted warriors against the Siou@ at Portage la Prairie during the &A*"s. during the &A7"s he lead a ,and of at least #" families including his si,lings, Boseph <+asesawa#, $right Star=, 2homas Bohn <Cheton=, ?dward <Ah,i,$*oon-e=, $aGel, and Ale@ander. ;ittle more is known of him until he appeared as spokesman for the Saulteau@ at the 2reaty +our negotiations. 1n the &A7"s he was one of the most vigorous opponents of the .udson%s $ay Company land holdings and had a great influence in the making of 2reaty +our. 2his antipathy for the .$C was likely inherited from his <step= great)grandmother /etnokwa <an Edawa= who was affiliated with the /orth 4est Company. .e represented the Iu%Appelle ;akes Saulteau@ in this negotiation. Gam,ler was originally slated to live on the 4aywayseecappo reserve at ;iGard Point, however, in &AA&, a dispute arose ,etween Chief 4aywayseecappo and his headman, Gam,ler. $y way of settlement, a portion of the ;iGard Point 0eserve <#" sHuare miles= was allocated for Gam,ler and his followers. 2hey were given this appropriation at Silver Creek, situated appro@imately five and one half miles southwest of the present day $inscarth Manito,a. Clerk of the Privy Council, B.D. Cote approved this allocation ,y Chief 4aywayseecappo on April !7, &AA&. 2his was recorded on Buly !7, &AA& and confirmation of Gam,ler5s reserve ,ecame effective on May &7, &AA', eight years later. 2wo years previous to this confirmation, ;ongclaws, Gam,ler and their followers decided to return to ;iGard Point, claiming that there was insufficient wood and water availa,le at Silver Creek. 1n &AA7, Gam,ler and his followers returned to ;iGard Point, giving as a reason, the shortage of hay land at Silver Creek. 2here was also some indication the land survey at Silver Creek did not place the reserve e@actly where Gam,ler had originally reHuested it. 2he resultant location e@cluded the wood and hay areas across the river. 2his was not a pro,lem in the early &AA"s, as there were few other people in the region and the group continued to make use of this land and its resources in spite of its location off) reserve. .owever, as settlement and immigration increased Gam,ler recogniGed that these practices could not continue. .e made several efforts in &AA( and &AA* to make a land e@change for land with ,etter hay and wood resources ,ut was re,uffed or ignored ,y officials. An additional reason to move was that the ;iGard Point 0eserve was much closer to their traditional hunting and trapping areas. $etween &AA" and &A'" some of Gam,lers followers 6oined the 1ndians who lived at -alley 0iver, leaving only mem,ers of the 2anner family living at Silver Creek. 2he census of &'"& shows that ,y that year, only &3 people remained at Gam,ler 0eserve8 Bohn 2anner <age 3"=, wife Marie <#(=, ( sons and ! daughtersD Ah)pa)tis5 widow <age *'=D (
