Oldest Indian on the Reservation
Has Finished Earthly
Career .
(Special to Evening Teller.)
SPALDING, Oct. 26.—Last week.
Waskin. the oldest Indian on the Nez
Perce reservation, living at the foot of
the Big Thunder hill, half way be
tween Lapwai and this place, passed
away, not on her trip to the proverbial
happy hunting grounds, for she was
one of the followers of the teachings of
the Rev. Henry Spalding in 1936.
She was one of a class of three that
learned to card, spin and weave, al
though she had done none of it fur
over forty years, she distinctly re
membered the principle features of the
work to the last. For several months
the old woman's mind has been fail
ing. She would occasionally break
out with the declarations that the flood
was again upon the world and that
great lakes of fire and brimstone were
appearing and then vanishing from her
View, ' *utside of these occasional vis
ions the old woman's mind was quite
clear to the last.
She asserts that she was horn five
years after the passing down the
Clearwater river of the Lewis & Clark
expedition, and she remembered very
distinctly the discussions of her par
ents while she was small, of the pos
sibility of the "Su-ye-ap-oo" (white
man) again visiting the Clearwater
The old woman clung to the primi
tive methods of her tribe. She ie
fused the comforts offered her of a
modern home hut preferred to live
alone, in an ancient "Te-pee" partially
made of hides and reeds, sleeping on
the ground during both summer and
winter. She was full of reminiscences
and it is regretted that they were not
chronicled before the passing away of
this interesting character.
