Saint Michael's Mission

Copyright © 2006 Barry G. Moses.

I spent several hours at the MAC this afternoon selecting historical photographs for my graduate project. I had a particular interest in the Ceremony of Tears at Kettle Falls, the boarding schools, religious missions, and other themes from early Native life. I saw several photographs of the old Saint Michael's Catholic Mission on Peone Prairie, and I remembered the original structure was moved to Mukugawa Fort Wright. I decided to visit the site on my way home and take a current photograph to compare with the original. I wonder if any of my ancestors received Catholic religion at that mission.
