Description they came there. There are more houses than their decaying race need, and they do not build new ones, nor could they build such as these. The large beams were perhaps brought by their forefathers from the San Francisco Mountain Forest, as there is no such timber near the Oraybe villages. Their ladders are made of Spruce wood, and have auger holes bored for the rungs. They look very old: but the people run up and down them like monkeys without bearing much weight upon them. There are several Moqui towns, but there does not seem to be much intercourse between their inhabitants, and they either affect, or really do, fail to understand each other's dialect. [TK: John Q.] Cannon was at four of their villages, but he could not understand whether the woman whom he called the Queen hd a power over any but her own townspeople. He says that as far as he could make it out, the power descended in the female line, and that the real Queen at Oraybe having died without leaving a daughter, her nearest female relation had succeeded to the privileges and duties of the post.
