Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

The Chickasaw tribe occupied much of the area that became Yoknapatawpha County in the decades before 1830, when white settlers began to move onto the land. By the time of "The Bear" they are long gone, though "Sam Fathers' Chickasaw predecessors" are referred to at one point (285), and at another the boy's prowess as a hunter and woodsman is measured by his ability to ambush a buck as "the old Chickasaw fathers did" (290).
