Chief Garry

Born on the cusp of cataclysmic change, the details of Chief Spokane Garry’s straddle two cultures and epochs. The son of a chief, he was born around 1811 and grew up near white traders in the Spokane area; Garry's original Spokane Salish name was Slough-Keetcha but at age 14 he became Spokane Garry after his father sent him to the Red River Settlement's missionary school near present-day Winnipeg.
