Cultural Director Quanah Matheson talked about the origins of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe and how they came to embrace the Catholic religion as he gave a tour of the “Sacred Encounters: Father De Smet & the Indians of the Rocky Mountain West” exhibit at Coeur d' Alene’s Old Mission State Park. Tribal Council Chairman Chief Allen explained how the tribe governs itself and its significance to the city. The tribe, also known as the Schitsu’umsh, or the "the discovered people", has lived on the land now known as Coeur d’Alene for thousands of years.
