Earlier this evening, I found an interesting research paper regarding Christianity and traditional Plateau Salish spirituality. The paper caught my attention because it described my grandfather Gibson Eli in great detail!
"Spiritual Symbiosis: The Jesuit, the Medicine Man, and the Leader of Song," was written by Chad Hamill. If you have any interest in local history or Native spirituality, then it's worth reading. The paper can be accessed here.
