The Mopope brothers have a large exhibit here and are selling quantities - they tell me they are cousins of Hobeah's. A Miss Peters who has charge of the Kiowa exhibit feels quite bitterly that Hobeah & Riley show her no courtesy. She raised Riley and encouraged and helped both to their present position. All the Kiowa people are sore & hurt because of the division here. Santa Fe & many of the tribes find the Kiowas flashy & ornate - extremely feathery. The tourists and numbers of the Indians are entranced by their brilliant appearances and the lively movement of their dances. John Sloan's article in Gallup Independent he says he did not write it & was misquoted - is answered today by Miss Peters.
