This looks interesting:

It is well known that most of the early Mongel queens were ardent Christians.  They were reluctant to give up the faith of their former homes in the west.  We'll see if Jack Weatherford perceives the significance of this in his new book.  (Jack Weatherford is one of my favorite authors.  I used his book "Indian Givers" as the basis for teaching a youth scouting class.)
