William Hepworth Dixon, White Conquest: Volume 1, Chapter 22: Indian seers. (search)
ve Red Cloud for our chief; a warrior cries, on which the bucks and braves all raise their wild yep, yep. This chorus is the call of heaven. So too, when the Saints are gathered in their church, divine in origin, each Saint is assumed to be fired and guided by the Holy Ghost. Let us have brother Brigham for our prophet, seer, and revelator, cries some elder, and the crowd of male and female Saints respond-Amen! The voice of the people is the voice of God. Seceders may go out from either Sioux camp or Mormon church, but to depose an Indian chief is no less hard than to dethrone a Mormon seer. Sitting Bull has separated from Red Cloud, carrying with him a thousand lodges of his nation; David Smith has separated from Brigham Young, carrying with him more than a thousand families of his people; yet Red Cloud remains the Sioux chief and Brigham remains the Mormon seer. Seceders cannot take away the grace which covers an appointed chief. The seer not only talks with the Great Spir

ooks and cabinets, like a gentleman's house in Regent's Park. Great care is taken that such transfers of property to the Church are made in legal form, and sworn before a Gentile judge. This Order has a strong attraction for the Shoshones, Sioux and Utes. Lame Dog or Flying Deer, according to his Indian legends, understands the Order as a call to come in and share the good things in Main Street and First Ward. Stalking into a shop, the Indian worthy helps himself to what he wants-rugs,ell and the Danite band. This doctrine of Retaliation-eye for eye, tooth for tooth, blood for blood — is not only foreign, but abhorrent to the Anglo-Saxon mind. All hunting tribes know the principle, and retain the practice. It is common to Sioux, Apaches, Kickapoos, and Kiowas. It is also common to Bedouins, Tartars, and Turkomans. In every savage tribe, Blood-Vengeance is a necessary act, and the Blood Avenger is regarded as a hero in his tribe. A Pai-TJte who scalps a Shoshone in re

ion of all lands and other property in stock and implements belonging to a landed estate. Fourth. A class of roamers and vagrants. The first class in this division is said to contain ninety-eight thousand souls, including, amongst others, Sioux, Utes, Apaches, Kiowas, Cheyennes, Comanches and Arapahoes. The second class is supposed to contain about fifty-two thousand souls, including, amongst others, Osages, Kickapoos, Pai-Utes, Shoshones, Pawnees, and Navajos. The third class is belitoo vague and weak for practical life, and is thrust aside by men who have to deal with living facts. These practical men know two Indian classes only- I. Wild Indians. II. Half-wild Indians. All the great families and tribes are wild: Sioux, Utes, Cheyennes, Arapahoes, Navajos, and the like. These are the Red men who have never been subdued and fixed. Pagan, predatory, and nomadic, these Indians count about two hundred thousand souls; and are the true Red men, unmixed with alien b
