Title Gentile Account, page 005
Description along the edges of all the side paths, which are overhung with trees; vineyards and orchards surround the houses, and there are so many birds about that Evan [her son] said "the cotton- woods seem to have budded out in blackbirds." The people are very friendly, and when I go out with the boys I receive count- less salutations and the women come to their doors to say a pleasant word or two, or invite us in. There are Indians lounging about as in the other Mormon settlements. Besides the Pi-edes," who belong to this Sta Clara country, there is a party of Navajoes here today, who were brought in from Arizona yesterday, by the interpreter Jacob Hamblinlo-a cast iron man who knows what he is talking about. I must expect to see little of K. as long as he can enjoy the society of these new pets. Except when with my husband, they hang about the Co-operative Store, round the corner, the grave and dignified bearing of the Navajoes, contrasting favorably with the slouching walk of the dirty Pi-edes. Thomas L. Kane and "BY" for Brigham Young. In other cases she may have used initials to mask the identities of individuals. "The Pi-edes are officially listed now as Piutes with a reservation west of St. George and also north in Piutc County. The Piutes Lvere looked down upon by stronger tribes such as the Navajos and Utes. This is also true of the white population as attested by Elizabeth Kane's reference to the Pi-cdes as "slouching" and "dirty," and the Navajos as "grave" and "dignified." "`Jacob Hamblin \vas listed on May 5, 1872, in the Stake Conference Report of the St. George Stake (L.D.S. Historian's Department), as "President of the Indian Mission, east and southeast of the Rio \`irgin." Hamblin was the foremost Mormon peacemaker with the Indians of his day. His Santa Clara home is no\v an L.D.S. Church \`isitors Center and is listed on the State Historical Register. He has become a legendary Mormon figure because of his successful dealings with the Indians in southern Utah and the south- \\`estern United States. 5
