Title Shockman
Description SHOCKMAN Bonny Nielson Dahlsrud Box 195 Salina, UT 84654 Non-Professional Division Third Place Poetry He came, a child, alone, afraid, aware Of only Indian ways. Captured, beat, And trusting none, then sold, to strange and fair- Skinned ones. Some called him Shockman, "rabbit feet" In Indian tongue. Two paths he walked, two Lives in one. A Ute at birth, a white man's Son. Obedient, gentle, kind, and true; Yet from the Utes, he mastered shrewd. Their lands Were his, their habits known. He traded lives With trinkets for their dark-skinned, savage hands. "No shoot, good brave, " his words could stop quick knives. A hero in both worlds, his legend stands. The Manti people loved hin so, with death He didn't die - but lived through other's breath. Source: Song Of A Century, p. 46. Heart Throbs of the West, by Mrs. Kate B. Carter, pp. 154-156. Author's feelings for Alma Shock Brown, adopted Indian boy of Janes P. Brown. -28-
