Teaser Tuesday: Songs of Power and Prayer in the Columbia Plateau

After the buffalo hunt, the Coeur d'Alene set out for their permanent winter camp in what is now known as Kingston, Idaho. According to the oral record, Circling Raven conducted a medicine dance that year, fulfilling a vision experienced some twenty years prior in which he had been told of Jesus and his resurrection.

This is a really interesting story about the connections between music, religion, and Native American spirituality.
