Others consisted simply of a shade made of brush piled on a framework of poles. These were called wickiups. In spite of a cold and trying winter, in xhlch men and cattle perished, when spring came the pioneers moved from theix dugouts into the valley. Here they built homes and planted crops as Walker had. requested* The settlement survived, grew, and in. time becaane the oity of Manti. Balkara's dream was now a reality. Sonnet Of The Sanpete-IS^ Inside wickiup of stick, stone and earth, Indian mother crouches hiding from storm, Newborn papoose, keeping safe and warn. Son of nighty Chieftain, son of noble birth, Inside wickiup of stick, stone and earth. On hillside in a dugout white mother rests, Newborn manchild pressed to her breast. In strange home on hillside in hole In the earth. Indian child, white child, In harsh cold weather Each learned to speak language of the other. One dressed in homespun, one clad In leather. Leaping through the sagebrush, playing in the sand. Fishing in the Sanpitch, make believe brothers. Heap big playmates, always seen together. Lillian Pox
