Jim Elijah





Jim Elijah was my great grandfather and a member of the Spokane Tribe. These photographs were taken during an American Indian conference convened in Spokane some time in the early 1920s. I'm searching my notes to find the exact date, but I'm sure I've seen pictures of all the tepees in Peaceful Valley, below the Monroe Street Bridge.

It's great that you have photos of your great grandfather. I hope you find out more about him and share with us...

It is rather extraordinary that his photograph found its way to me. I was quite surprised when his picture turned up at a local archive. Fortunately for me, they offered a print service.

Now if I can only find some old stories...
