Tabooing Tribal Marriages
Among the June weddings that created interest at the office of the Clerk of the Superior Court where Cupid reigns was that of Kate Crozier a Wallapai Indian of more than ordinary intelligence and Fannie Beecher Kate and Fannie had long been married according to the custom of the Wallapais but Kate began to emass some property and believing that the disintegration of the tribal relations of the Wallapai tribe was near at hand and that the children might be done out of the property in the event of his death he concluded to legitimatize these children so that they might inherit the property without question Kev W G Blakely performed the ceremony Thursday last and Mr and Mrs Kate Crozier departed to their home at Nelson supremely happy
The marriage custom of the Wallapais is rather simple the bride usually having no say in the matter. The groom to be approaches the parents of the young lady he would fain make his bride and after considerable haggling a price would be agreed upon and the daughter would be sent over to the leepe of her purchaser. While some of the young squaws would rebel against the sale they usually had to conform to the custom. The squaws are sold when very oung the ruling age being less than twelve years. The price ranges from 300 for princesses of the blood to a few dollars or a horse or blanket for less favored girls in only a few instances do the Indians go outside of their own tribe for a bride as this custom has been frowned down upon by the matchmaking mothers and especially is the intercourse of the tribe is very limited and the opportunity is not given the younger members to get acquainted with the desirable joung women of another nation of Indians although they may reside within a hundred miles or less from each other.
To illustrate the providence of some of the Indians Kate Crozier offered in payment of his marriage license a 50$ government check and when the official was unable to handle such a large sum the blushing bride was called upon and brought up from the depth of one legging the needful amount
