The Powers of Slumach

Joanne Peterson recently discovered--thanks-- that Wayne Suttles in his book Coast Salish Essays (p. 79) mentions that according to Old Peter Pierre, a Katzie man named [Slumach] had obtained a warrior spirit, a "timber giant," as his guardian spirit "and could therefore perform great feats of strength." Suttles refers to Diamond Jenness's The Faith of a Coast Salish Indian (p. 61) for that information.
Click here to read what was said about that on this blog in 2007.
