Title Gentile Account, page 024
Description while the Pi-edes either drag them near where there is wood and burn them, or else desert the encampment where they have died. The Moquis are a very religious people. At stated seasons they unite in dancing before sacred pictures. "These are done in colours on letter paper like children's toy drawings. They have an artist whose business it is to draw them. We [TK: I and Brother Ira Hatch13" took them some colours and paper, and Brother Hatch persuaded the artist to draw some for him, but the people found it out the day after we left, and sent after us, and would have them back. They said their forefathers had made them promise that they would never let the Cochinos out of the villages, still less let them cross the Colorado." I inquired what the Cochinos resembled. "They are rude representations of such things as a mule with a pack, a man driving him, a goat, flames of fire, or a waterfall. You can gen- erally make out what they mean, but no more. There are sim- ilar drawings on the rocks near here." "`Ira Hatch was first called as a missionary to the Indians in 1853 at age twenty, serv- ing until his death fifty-six years later in 1909. He married an Indian woman, Sarah, after the death of his first wife. Sarah's mother, a Piute, died when Sarah was seven. Her father, a Navajo chief known as Spaneshank, asked Hatch to raise the girl because the Navajos would mistreat her. Hatch agreed and turned her over to a Mrs. Gibbons. When she was sixteen a church leader visiting the Gibbons home with Hatch one evening suggested that Hatch marry her. Hatch agreed and they awakened the sleeping girl to ask her views. She agreed, provided they "wait until morning. " Rut the church leader could not stay over so the marriage was performed that night. Sarah bore Hatch four children before she died in childbirth, as had his first wife. Hatch remarried and his third wife brought four children to their marriage, took over his four motherless children and they added two more oftheir own. Hatch's life-long work with the Indians took him to many remote areas of Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada.
