Harrison Lapahie told his son, Harrison Lapahie Jr., that his mom's dad was a Policeman. Not a policeman in the sense today. He was chosen to oversee his group. He would oversee certain Navajo bands when they returned from Fort Sumner, NM. This was the time of return of the Navajo Tribe after being held as Prisoners-Of-War at the concentration camp (Fort Sumner, NM), after the war with the United States of America. Sarah (Lapahie) Largo said that his name was Hosteen Nataani Atsósie Begay. Harrison Lapahie Jr., chose Hastiin (correct Navajo spelling) over the common English anglicized spelling, Hosteen.

An email was received from Ephraim Anderson on March 25, 2011 saying the following:

As members of the Garnenez, Kindles, Lights, and Anderson, we are very much aware of Salow (Police), Topaha (birth name), Tsosie (Slim), or Silaago Altsosie social status, and are aware that he had at least four wives from the Beclahbeto to Cove areas. Yeil-Dez Bah being the Wife our family is descendant from and Asdzá Léh Holgéh being your family ancestor.

Below is birth and death information for Silaago alTsosie:

At the bottom are excerpts of a short bio written into a book by Evan Williams.

Slim Policeman did not always work in harmony with the leaders of his day because he felt that these leaders were not always on the side of peace and goodwill. He was contemporary with such leaders such Blackhorse, Bezhoshie, Hastiin Chone(?), Yellowhorse, Costiano and the rest; but he was much younger and had not the influence or fame which had come to them. But later on his influence came to be felt in the councils of the tribesmen.

At the beginning of the captivity of the Navajo Nation under Kit Carson in 1864, the father and mother of Slim Policeman was a young married couple. The father was already a medicine man of growing fame and ability and was known as Tapaho-nez (Tábaahaaso Neez?). Tapaho being the family name and Nez indicated his tall stature.

The family belonged to the Tó dích’íi’nii Clan (Bitter water). And right here it might be of interest to insert the reason for the name of this clan and of some others closely related to it. And the child which had been left by the roadside to die finally recovered and became the subject of our sketch, Tapaho-Nez Bega, and who later became known as Salow-Eltsocie.

It is more likely that Tapaho-Nez Bega who later became known as Silaago Altsosie was his common name, but my relatives knew him as Hosteen Nataani Atsósie Begay.
