The little Bone Indian Reserve was located about twelve miles south of Yorkton between the Leech and Crescent Lakes. While most of the Indians on the reserve were moved, in 1912, north of Broadview in the Qu'Appelle Valley, the chief remained on Little Bone until the time of his death in 1921. His death occurred while attending Yorkton Exhibition. He was buried on the north shore of Crescent Lake on the Reserve.
