Bill Pickett was born to Thomas Jefferson Pickett, a former slave, and Mary "Janie" Gilbert, near Taylor, Texas in 1870. The family's ancestry was African-American and Cherokee. Bill remains most famous for inventing “bulldogging”, or the biting of the upper lip of steers to subdue them. As an African-American, Pickett could not compete against whites in rodeo competitions. Therefore, he would often be billed as Indian or remain unidentified to enable him to compete.
