Mąčopaga Grizzly Bear Head was a Native American and member of the Ho-Chunk tribe.
"[Ely Rashdall] also says that White Breast's father was called Kee-zuntshga [Kizų́čka], meaning soft-shelled turtle, and his grandfather was called Ma-sho-pa-ka [Mąčopaga], meaning grizzly bear head. Both lived at Koshkonong ..." (Jipson, Villages, 227; Story, 234-235) Obviously, "Grizzly Bear Head" is a Bear Clan name, which is in keeping with his grandson, White Breast, being a member of this clan.
