Christensen, C. L., [Interview], in "Utah Pioneer Biographies," 44 vols., 7:76, 78, 80.
The first Indians Mr. Christensen ever saw were the Sioux. When crossing the plains a great band of the Sioux traveled along with the company or just to the side of it. One day at noon Mr. Christensen's father went to hunt some sage hens for some of the sick women in the company. His partner stumbled and by accident his gun went <off> killing Mr. Christensen. The Indians came into camp and mourned and cried on Mrs. Christensen's shoulder. Mr. Christensen states that here was probably where his love for the Indians began.
