and many of his people felt betrayed and rejected Mormonism. They
continued their struggle against hunger on the reservation. Pocatello
withdrew from participation in reservation affairs and lived his
remaining years in discontent. In October 1884 the chief died. According
to his instructions, his body, along with his clothing, guns, knives,
and hunting equipment, were bound together and tossed into a deep spring
in southern Idaho. Eighteen horses were also slaughtered and rolled
into the spring on top of the chief.
