|| Bill: You said while ago, now, this is Grandma Supernaw,
you s Ö. Grandma, didnít you say while ago that you
didnít want any more Chiefs?
Grandma: Huh uh! I donít want no Chief, anybody.
Bill: You donít want nobody to be Chief no more?
Bill: When your daddy (Tall Chief-Louis Angel) died
thatís all you wanted, huh?
Grandma: Uh huh!
Bill: It was left up to you?
Grandma: Yeah, just up to me, so, when Iím gone, Iím
gone, thatís all!
Bill: And you donít want nobody to give names to
Grandma: Huh uh! No! Nobody ainít going to give a name
neither. Thatís all there is to it, thatís the end of
it, I guess.
Bill: Now, while ago you said that you, you appointed
Irvin (Wilson) for last one and Sidney, you know, Second
Bill: And thatís all you are going to appoint?
Grandma: Yeah! Irvin is Second Chief and, and he died.
Grandma: And Victor first and Irvin Second Chief and he
died. So, I donít know who, Iím afraid to, Iím afraid to
appoint, appoint somebody Chief. Iím afraid he wonít
live long, thatís reason. I donít want to give a, I
donít want no Chief. And like you say, McKibben want
Chief. If he want, uh, if he donít want live long, he
can have Chief, want, want to, but then, thatís all I
can say. People what they want Chief, find out they
donít. Quapaw all going be dying, dying anyhow, so, all
mixed up after while, all kind of Indians and, White
and, different kind of Indian, so, canít be Chief,
anybody, thatís all I can say.
We lost everything when, uh, when my father died, so,
Iím here giving name too, but nobody ainít going to give
a name, so, thatís all there is to it, I can say. So,
that be end of it. Thatís all.
Bill: So anybody thatís, wants to be Chief, thereís
something happen to them, huh?
Bill: Anybody that wants to be Chief, thereís something
going to happen to them, is that what you said a while
Grandma: Yeah! See, I donít know how long live, how long
live, Irvin, when he was Chief? You know?
Bill: Oh, well, he lived quite awhile. Well, they
wouldnít listen to Irvin, See, but he was a good one.
Grandma: Yeah, sure! Sure with Mr. Irvin.
Bill: But he had a heart attack, like I did, see.
Grandma: Um huh. I donít know, anybody that wants to be
Chief, explain to them first to see if he be Chief, want
to, could go ahead Chief, thatís all I can say. But
Irvin got all records, he had, like that, you know, and
he thought maybe he be chief too, I guess. If he ainít
afraid to die, he can go ahead, thatís all I can say.
