Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 065
Description at once squat down again, huddling their blankets round them, with a pleasanter look on their dark faces than they had yet worn. "What did your mother say to those men, Mr. Q.?" I asked, curiously. "She said `These strangers came first, and I have only cooked enough for them; but your meal is on the fire cooking now, and I will call you as soon as it is ready.' " "Will she really do that, or just give them scraps at the kitchen-door ? " I pursued, thinking of "cold-victual" beggars at home. "Our Pah-vants know how to behave," he answered, with the pride of a Kirkbride in his own lunatics. "Mother will serve them just as she does you, and give them a place at her table." And so she did. I saw her placing clean plates, knives, and forks for them, and waiting behind their chairs, while they ate with perfect propriety. She rose a hundred per cent in my opinion. After supper, Kanosh, chief of the Pah-vant Indians, into whose country we had now entered, came to pay a formal visit to T. with the chiefs of his band.38 38There is no biography devoted exclusively to Kanosh, but he is mentioned in all books dealing with the settlement of the southern part of Utah and in those books concerned with Indians. According to Sonne, World of Wa&zra, p. 8, Kanosh was a brother of Chief Walker and several other Indian leaders of this era. Kanosh was always a friend to the Mormons. Like Wakara, Kanosh was baptized into the Mormon church but remained faithful to the church all of his life. As a leader of the Pahvants he was instrumental in getting other Indian leaders to sign treaties with the white settlers. He and his band settled on Corn Creek and farmed. One of Chief Kanosh's wives was the Indian girl purchased by Charles Decker and raised in the Young home referred to in footnote IO. 65
