During the winter, they moved across the Mississippi to present-day Iowa for winter hunts and fur trapping.
Little is known about Black Hawk's youth. He was said to be a descendant of Nanamakee Thundera Sauk chief who, according to tradition, met an early French explorer, possibly Samuel de Champlain.
He won approval by killing and scalping his first enemy. He had limited success until, at age 19, he led men in a battle against the Osage, in which he personally killed five men and one woman. After Pyesa died from wounds received in the battle, Black Hawk inherited the Sauk medicine bundle which his father had carried, giving him an important role in the tribe.
Black Hawk did not belong to a clan that provided the Sauk with hereditary civil leaders, or "chiefs". He achieved status through his exploits as a warrior and by leading successful raiding parties. Men like Black Hawk are sometimes called "war chiefs", but historian Patrick Jung writes, "It is more accurate to call them 'war leaders' since the nature of their office and the power that it wielded was much different from that of a civil chief.
Hall have suggested the term "war captain" for this role. Black Hawk participated in the and sieges; the fort fell to British-supported Indians in During the War ofBlack Hawk, now 45, served as a war leader of a Sauk band at their village of Saukenukwhich fielded about warriors.
He supported the invalidity of Quashquame 's Treaty of St. The lack of the consensus aspect by each of the Sauk and Fox councils meant that the treaty could never be considered valid by Black Hawk and other traditionalists.
The British depended upon alliances with the Native American population to wage war in this area since the British were occupied with Napoleon in Europe. Black Hawk and his band of about Sauk warriors were included in this group of allies.
Dickson commissioned Black Hawk at the rank of brevet Brigadier General with command over all native allies at Green Bay and presented him with a silk flag, a medal, and a written certificate of good behavior and alliance with the British.
The war leader preserved the certificate for 20 years; it was found by US forces after the Battle of Bad Axealong with a flag similar in description to that Dickson gave to Black Hawk.
Black Hawk despaired over the many lives lost due to European attack methods; soon after, he quit the war to return home. Back in Saukenuk, he found that his rival Keokuk had become the tribe's war chief.
Conflicting accounts of the action were given by the Missouri leader John Shaw  and by Black Hawk. Later he said he was not aware of this stipulation. Black Hawk and other tribal members disputed the treaty, as noted above, and said leaders had signed it without full tribal authorization.
He was persuaded to return west each time without bloodshed. In Aprilencouraged by promises of alliance with other tribes and with Britainhe moved his so-called " British Band " of more than people, both warriors and non-combatants, into Illinois.
When Black Hawk entered Illinois in April, his British Band was composed of about warriors and 1, old men, women, and children. They crossed the river near the mouth of the Iowa River and followed the Rock River northeast.
Along the way, they passed the ruins of Saukenuk and headed for the village of Ho-Chunk prophet White Cloud. Other Native Americans and settlers carried out acts of violence for personal reasons amidst the chaos of the war.
