Title Invitation to Sanpete
Description thirty-two grandchildren remained and made Ephraim their home base. At the present time, many newcomers are moving into Sanpete County to enjoy the scenery, rural culture, educational opportunities, open highways, and countryside with room to roam and relatively inexpensive building sites. A special Scandinavian Festival is sponsored annually by the residents of Ephraim. It is held during the Memorial Day weekend and attracts many who display and exchange homemade items having Scandinavian characteristics. Many who have roots in the Sanpete Valley, but are no longer residents, return for a rendezvous and good visit with friends and relatives The Scandinavian culture still survives in the Sanpitch River Basin. May it long endure. INVITATION TO SANPETE Lillian H. Fox Professional Third Place Historical Essay Two years after the arrival of the pioneers in the Salt Lake Valley, Brigham Young was called from his breakfast table to listen to a strange request Walker, War Chief of the Ute Indian Nation, and twelve of his tribesmen had come to Salt Lake requesting a campfire conference with the Great White Chief of the "Mormonee." This news must have stunned Brigham Young He eyed the group with friendly suspicion, but soon sat facing them around a campfire. Six of them were Walker's brothers and half-brothers, the subchiefs Arropine, Grocepean, Ankiwalketts, Tabinaw, Ammon and Sanpitch. The other six were warriors. All were half-naked and painted, having just returned from a raid on the Shoshone Indians further north. Fresh scalps hung from their belts. 130
