INTERESTING OBSERVATIONS AT THE INDIAN'S OWN HOME.
Joshua Given, one of Carlisle's old pupils and now a student at the Lincoln University this State, is at the present time visiting his home at the Kiowa Agency, Indian Territory. In a letter written July 26th, he says:
"Five days after my arrival the delegates to the International Council held at Ft. Gibson consisting of all the Kiowa chiefs and a few of the Comanches held a meeting, at which a report of the proceedings was read.
I was present at the meeting at the request of the chiefs.
I learned that the Indians living in this territory have agreed to form a united government. That those who are still living upon reservations should soon stop drawing rations fromm the Government and thus be independent.
Soon after the report was read I was called upon to give the old chiefs a little talk.
This request I granted and when I got through with my talk six Kiowa boys and girls were given to me to take back to Carlisle.
The Agent is anxious that I should take any young Indian to Carlisle who is promising for future usefulness. The old chiefs are hard to convince that education is a good thing, and some of them are great gamblers, too.
Lone Wolf and the younger chiefs are making wonderful progress toward civilization. Stumbling Bear and Cat are with the progressive.
The corn crop is a success this season among these people.
The Kiowas and Comanches cultivate from 15 to 150 acres of land to each farmer.
Watermelons are plentiful and a few of the Indian farmers have an abundance of potatoes.
On the whole they are doing well.
Lucius Aitson and Mabel and their two children are doing nicely.
Lucius is a member of the Police force and is now in Russel, Texas, on important duty.
Virginia has two daughters and is a regular Indian.
Her husband is a returned Chilocco school pupil and the agent told me that they have a very large farm and splendid crops, too.
Emily Peatone is the dirtest (sic) returned\Carlisle pupil I have met. She has one child.
Chas. Ohetoint and Paul Tsaitkopta are dressed in Indian but both have splendid farms.
Of the Comanches Solomon Chandler is doing nicely and is married to a Comanche
woman. Howard Chawhip is dressed in Indian but doing herding for his uncle White Wolf.
Cheape Ross is as his employer said to me "doing better than a white person would."
Marcus Poco is no good, in every sense of the phrase. Is married and has one boy - long hair and face painted in yellow and red. The Kiowas told me that POCO loves horseracing too dearly.
The Wichitas are doing better than the others though they also have temptations to meet.
I am invited to address several meetings in the towns of Texas.
Mrs. Doanmoe was well when I last saw her. Etahdleuh’s brother said that Richard should go east to school as soon as he is big enough.
The report of so much of Etahdleuh’s property being destroyed by the Indians is not true. I have seen the house and the wagon, corn-field and other things.
Laura remains just as firm in her new life and she should be encouraged.
While the Indians are proud of their corn fields and the success they are making, it was due to Etahdleuh’s advice. That is what the Agency people say.
August 10, 1888 INDIAN HELPER
White Wolf, Comanche, Lone Wolf, Kiowa, and Koh-ty, Lieutenant of the Police of the Kiowas come last Thursday and spent a few days at the school. They were fine looking men, but what a pity they have no education! All their thoughts have to pass through another’s mouth before they Can reach the ear of the white man. It makes them very weak and dependent. They are not as independent as educated boys of ten and eleven years old. The Man-on-the-band-stand could but feel sorry for them.
February 1, 1889 INDIAN HELPER
Albert White Wolf was seriously hurt by a falling ladder blown down by Wednesday’s storm. It was a narrow escape from instan-
taneous death. The Dr. has hopesof his recov-ery. He is suffering from slight concussion of the brain.
