Title Indian Chief Arrapene
Description HONORABLE MENTION ANECDOTE INDIAN CHIEF ARRAPENE Ruth D. Scow 94 West 400 South Manti, Utah 84642 intrigued with the Indian Chief Arrapene who succeeded Chief Walker as Chief of the Ute Indians. I came upon this story telling about what happened the morning of April 18, 1865 when John Lowry pulled the Indian Yene-wood (Jake Arropeen) off his horse. My Grandmother Munk often told me Chief Arrapene often joined in the Mormon Church services held in the Council House. Before the meeting closed that day he let it be known that he wouId like to speak and was given that privilege. He began He raised his voice to a high pitch, grabbed his dagger and sank it into the pulpit and broke the blade. The women and chi ldfen became somewhat nervous, but Arrapene meant no harm. This was just his savage way of letting the people know he appreciated the square deal the Mormons were giving the Indians. Another" junday morning he came in with the bishop and brought a renegade Indian with him. Arrapene was in Che habit of carrying a cane which had a spike in told the audience that Arrapene wished to let the people see how he warned bad Indians. He took his cane and put a time or two and said, This will make him remember to Chief walker, Chief Arrapene, and Chief Black Hawk. Chief Black Hawk attended school in the 185O's in Manti, but there is no record that Chief Arrapene could write. We know that he agreed with the settlers when ri^ deeded Sanpete Countv to the church in 1335. with an "X"), his mark.
