Sixteenth Day of Advent

Kootenay Chief,  The Huron Carol
From very far, a Kootenay chief of the West coast.  First Nations peoples traveled and traded goods, but there were certain geographic limitations - over the Rocky Mountains was too far for this chief, a kind advisor said.  But this is a story about miracles and wonders, the impossible made possible. A few mountains wouldn't get in the way.


  1. I completely agree with you about mountains not getting in the way of miracles. xo

    1. Exactly. Thank you Frances!
      More recently I have read that some of the Kootenay did travel to the western plains for part of the year and took part in the bison hunt, so even though it doesn't matter to the allegory, crossing the Rockies was not implausible.
