Pedro is Mary's first child, his father, who Mary married in a traditional marriage, abandoned her shortly after learning that she was pregnant. Pedro does not play a large role in the novel, his importance comes from the fact that his birth occurred during the siege at Wounded Knee. Pedro grows up to become a yuwipi leader and medicine man like Leonard.
