First Peoples

The Guests are Here


Catholic Church, Okanagan Indian Reserve

Father Nobili spent two years on this site, from 1848-1850. There was no British Columbia then, and no Reserve. When the British came in 1859, he was soon forgotten. I am remembering him this Christmas Eve, in that moment of pure Grace. Look how the spirits have come to his welcome in what only looks like an empty, half-ruined church.
