Title Coyote people and the black robes: Indigenous roots of Salish Christianity.
Author Mellis, John C.
Summary "Over the decade spanning the 1830s, the Flathead tribe of Montana, on four separate occasions, sent representatives to St. Louis in search of black-robed priests and teachers. In the controversy surrounding the object of that visit, whether for the "Book" or for the "Black Robes", little attention has been given to their own internal motivation in undertaking the long, dangerous journey, though various theories have been suggested." taken from the provided opening, p.1.
