Recent years I was disillusioned when I learned that as a young man He Sold His Mother sold his mother law s elderly slave for money for a team and wagon to take the family from Winter uarters to Salt Lake City Christensen s account was once again humanizing and helped me see my ancestor as a real person with both real foibles and real virtues In his dealings with the Shoshone he was na ve in his zeal but big hearted in his enerosity and sympathy for his Indian friends I was happy to see that Than Those Who Came Before those who came before after him he seemed to see Sagwitch as a partner and colleague on his reat mission rather than a subservient wardSagwitch and the Northwest Band of Shoshone have left barely a footprint on the collective memory of Northern Utah today Their farming community at Washakie disintegrated in the mid twentieth century and band members largely integrated into neighboring Utah communities Some found their way North to Fort Hall Things may be starting to change though Earlier this year the band arranged to purchase the massacre site and tribal members led by Chairman Darren Parry visited Preston on a first of its kind outreach mission in that community to memorialize the massacre and celebrate Shoshone heritage It was an interesting story about the leader of a band of Shoshone in Northern UtahSouthern Idaho The book jumped around chronologically within a few years and it frustrated me It talks about the death of Brigham Young in 1877 and jumps in the next paragraph back to 1868 I also would have preferred discussion about the conversion of hundreds of Shoshone to the Mormon religion Was it convenience Did they see the writing on the wall Or was it an honest declaration of faith Not a very well written book but the subject matter made it worth plowing through. Ormon Church Though not without problems that conversion was long lasting and thorough Sagwitch and other Shoshone would demonstrate in important ways their new religious devotion With the assistance of Mormon leaders they established the Washakie community in northern Utah Though efforts to secure a land base had an uneven history they partly succeeded and the story of these Shoshone's attempts at rural farming diverged significantly from what happened on overnment reservations When Sagwitch died his death went almost unnoticed outside of Washakie but his children and randchildren continued to be important voices among a people who after experiencing near annihilation survived in the new world into which Sagwitch led them. Sagwitch Shoshone Chieftan Mormon Elder 1822 1887There is very little source material about Sagwitch himself THIS FLESHED OUT FROM A MASTER S book was fleshed out from a Master s and ives a wider view time s window frame of the indigenous populace and white settlers in the Great Basin Sagwitch is was an eye opening view of the early history of my home which turns out to be much fascinating than the whitewashed version I was raised with Christensen s account of the Bear River Massacre and the events that led up to it is not sensationalist but it also does not minimize or excuse the atrocity By recounting the events as they were described by contemporary sources he lets them speak for themselves and the effect is arguably powerful than if he had condemned them outright The book imparts a human perspective both Shoshone and Mormons come across as complex three dimensional actors Christensen clearly portrays Sagwitch in particular as an agent and not a mere victim which helps set his book apart from the typical account of such a tragedy He is a savvy protagonist who while severely limited by violence and loss of resources brilliantly negotiates his changing world to make the most of a bad situation for his people With that said the book is by no means merely a book about the tragedy near Preston Retold in the first few chapters the massacre rather serves as a backdrop for the Shoshone struggle for identity and survival under the Deal Maker (Mixed Messages Book 2) (English Edition) guidance of the ingenious and tenacious SagwitchI have a personal connection to the book as well The middle third of the book is as much about George Washington Hill the Mormon emissary to the Shoshone as about Sagwitch Hill is my thricereat Godmanstone Blues grandfather and Irew up with a hagiographic image of Hill as a reat Mormon saint who saved and baptized hundreds of Indians in Northern Utah In. Winter morning in 1863 The Bear River Massacre was among the bloodiest engagements of America's Indian wars Hundreds of Shoshone including Sagwitch's wife and two sons died; he was wounded but escaped The band was shattered; other chiefs dead The following years were very hard for the survivors The federal overnment negotiated a treaty with them but failed to et Sagwitch's signature when enroute to the sessions he was arrested and then wounded by a white assassin With the world around him changed Sagwitch sought accommodation with the most immediate threat to his people's traditional way of survival the Mormons occupying the Shoshone's valleys This then is also the story of the conversion of Sagwitch and his band to the Met the author yesterday currently archivist at LDS Church History Library Snooper White Hair is his Shoshone name iven to at LDS Church History Library Snooper White Hair is his Shoshone name iven to shortened to White Hair as there s no Shoshone translation for Snooper They were pleased with his book They had iven their story to many but no other had passed it on as it should be Sagwitch and the Shoshone Indians lived in Parkinson country of Southern Idaho rather Parkinsons settled in Shoshone country in 1860 Samuel Rose and Arabella Parkinson adopted one of the three surviving 3 year old children of Bear River Massacre 1860 Samuel Rose and Arabella Parkinson adopted one of the three surviving 3 year old children of Bear River Massacre forward to the readAvailable at Utah State University Press I was surprised how much I liked this book Perhaps because it relates to my family s history I m place and time The author treats all the participants fairly The Shoshone attempts at farming were remarkable I don t recall having read of another American Indian Spitting Daisies Communicating Through the Sunset group who were as successful albeit after many tries and trials Nor have I read of other Anglos who assisted with such dedication as did the several in this case A truly remarkable effort by all those involved Some things such as Bear River Massacre take a long timeetting an accurate name Battle of Bear River was hardly sufficient Fascinating account of the Shoshone in Northern Utah Well written with useful photos and maps Many books have been written about Mormon pioneers and other settlers of the West Few have been written about the Native Americans who were here when they arrived This well written biography shares the moving story of Sagwitch He was a young survivor of the Bear River Massacre and overcame that horror to help his people and live an incredible life A reat monograph about a Shoshone warrior who was willing to work out compromises with early Utah settlers The Northwestern Shoshone knew as the northern Great Salt Lake Bear River Cache and Bear Lake valleys northern Utah Sagwitch was born at a time when his people traded with the mountain men In the late 1850s wagons brought Mormon farmers to settle in Cache Valley the Northwestern Shoshone heartland Emigrants and settlers reduced Shoshone access to traditional village sites and food resources Relationships with the Mormons were mostly ood but often strained and the Shoshone treatment of migrants who now traveled north and south as well as west and east through the area was increasingly opportunistic It only took a few violent incidents for a zealous army colonel to seek severe punishment of the Northwestern Shoshone on
