Indian and Catholic Spirituality Paths of the Plateau Tribes
by Patrick J. Twohy, Jesuit Priest, who has lived and worked with Native American Peoples in the Pacific Northwest for the past thirty-five years.
"I would like to add this little work to the efforts of so many Elders to pass on something solid about their Faith in the face of an 'outside' culture which threatens to sweep over the young and wash them away.
If one young adult finds here something to help him sort out life's meaning and direction, I feel well rewarded.
If one young person reads something here that makes her feel very good about herself, my joy is complete.
And if this book stimulates Indian poets and philosophers to write with courage and pride about the meaning of their Indian and Catholic past, present, and future, I will then truly feel this writing has served its purpose."
