Title The White Woman
Description the upset Indian, still brandishing his knife, entered the cabin, he found a calm Mrs, Brown peeling potatoes for her family13 noon meal. Hurriedly he glanced around the room. Mrs. Richards was nowhere to be seen* He stooped and looked, under the bed. Finding no one there, he used his long knife to push the clothes along the wall. Then turning to Mrs. Brown, he demanded, "Where is she, the white woman? Where is she?" Not speaking, Mrs. Brown raised her hand in a gesture toward the door. Thinking Mrs, Richards had gone that way, the distraught Indian raced through the doorway, through the lean-to, and spent the balance of the day searching among the willows and brush that lined City Creek. Finally Brockley's anger subsided, and feeling tired and discouraged he once again entered his own teepee, where he found his papoose much improved. Note: Hy Grandmother told this story to me, and her other grandchildren, many times. She always emphasized that her mother, Mrs. Brown, was honest and did not want to tell Brockley a lie. It was the Indian who misunderstood her gesture. Other sources: SONG OF A CENTURY, Manti Centennial Committee, 1949, P- 17* Early Manti, Mrs. A. B.
