Examples

  • I'd been a model, if reserved, son-in-law, Sonsee-array was clearly infatuated, and what pinda-lickoyee, honoured by admission to the Mimbreno and marriage to the Morning Star, would be so half-witted as to want to return to his own people?

    Isabelle

  • But the pinda-lickoyee people are many in number-as many as the trees in the Gila forest, I'm told.

    Isabelle

  • I can close my eyes and hear them tinkling yet, sixty years after, and feel the pine-needles under my knees, and smell the wood smoke mingling with the musky perfume of her hair and the scent of the wild flowers outside her bower ... the soft lips teasing my ear, murmuring "Make my bells ring again, pinda-lickoyee* (* Literally," white-eye "; a white man ....)"

    Isabelle

  • "What do you say, pinda-lickoyee?" says he, and there was baleful suspicion in every line of that horrible face.

    Isabelle

  • You like Sonsee-array, don't you, pinda-lickoyee Flaz'man?

    Isabelle

  • Mangas: When my little dove, my dear Sonsee-array, told me how you had fought for her-how you sank your knife in the belly of the pinda-lickoyee scalp-hunter, and tore and twisted his vitals, and drank his blood-I thought, there is one with the spirit of Mangas Colorado!

    Isabelle

  • But we shall destroy them, if they come against us, the whole race of pinda-lickoyee, even all ten thousand.

    Isabelle

  • Perhaps one day I shall send you to the Snow Woman, even as the pinda-lickoyee of Texas sent messengers to her, with offers of friendship.

    Isabelle

  • But other tribes-Arapaho, Cheyenne, Shoshoni-have been quiet, and still the pinda-lickoyee force law on them.

    Isabelle

  • For as the warm dawn came up, and I was drowsing happily under the blanket and deciding there were worse places to be than the Gila forest, there were those little lips at my ear, and those hard breasts against me, and the tiny whisper: "Make my bells ring again, pinda-lickoyee."
