Spiritual Guide

Many of the saints of Christendom are identified by an animal symbol.

The early Algonquin Indians accepted the Christiam missionaries because both shared a belief in Spirit Animals, and the fusion of both religious beliefs led to a workable model that lasted over 200-years.

Eventually, all traces of native spirituality were eliminated from this hybrid spiritual movement, and modern day natives are nearly 100% christians.
