The Baptism of Slough-Keetcha

Stacy Nation-Knapper, a doctoral candidate in history at York University, recently published the baptismal record of Slough-Keetcha (Spokane Garry of the Spokane Tribe). Slough-Keetcha was baptized by David T. Jones on June 24, 1827 at the Red River School. 

The article can speak for itself, but as an aside, I found it interesting that my tribal group was identified as the "Spokane Tribe" as early as 1827. This is especially interesting considering Spokane was really the name of Slough-Keetcha's father, not the tribe.
