Description of Pioche, near what is known as Mormon cave. The prophet is of the Pah-ran-a-gatz tribe, Diggers speaking the Pi-ede lan- guage. He had sent a call to all the Pi-edes and to all others who wished to hear him, that he had received a visit from an angel, who had informed him that he was the same who some years before visited another Indian, and told him of his ancestry giv- ing him a book relating to them. His mission now was to inform those who would listen that the Great Spirit was about to destroy the earth and all who do wickedly. The prophet urged upon the Indians to listen to the instructions of good men, to refrain from shedding blood and stealing, and he exhorted them to gather together to dance and sing for joy, for the day would soon come when they would be a less degraded and better people. Hardy says that the Indians gathered at St George as a cen- tral point in obedience to runners sent by the prophet. They were hanging round so long waiting for the return of delega- tions from each band who had gone to meet him, for the prophet himself did not come to St George. They inquired very anxiously of Hardy respecting the mys- terious Book. He, I think, though he did not tell me so, consid- ered that they were divinely guided to seek information regard- ing the Book of Mormon which treats so largely the aboriginal Indians.96 Of course the Mormon missionaries have a great advan- tage over ours in being able to foster Indian reverence for their ""The Book of Mormon tells the story of two early American groups, the descendants of Nephi (Nephites) and the descendants of Laman (Lamanites). According to the book the latter group exterminated the former and became the ancestors of the American Indian. 94
