Mahone, along with three other Hualapais and three non-Indians, served as pallbearers in a service that combined Christian and Hualapai funeral rites. To honor Swaskegame, who died in combat in 1918, the American Legion post in Kingman was named after him. The funeral came at an auspicious time and is remembered as a turning point in the tribe’s history, a moment when the Hualapais were considered citizens.
