Horace P. "'isluumc" Axtell - The Lewiston Tribune: Obituaries

A national treasure and an important link to this land and its past
has left us richer, and we will be poorer without him.

Washat -- The Seven Drums "Religion"

"....we prefer not to use the word religion but more a way of life—a life that was dictated to us by the natural surroundings of our environment." ABC-CLIO SCHOOLS

American Indian Religions: The Dreamers

"Today, the Dreamer Religion (also known as the Seven Drums Religion) continues to be celebrated by many Plateau Indians."

This was Horace Axtell's spiritual path.  His wisdom was the perennial philosophy.
"We are identified in the world at large with this religion (Christianity) because some of us espouse it not only publicly but also vociferously. As a consequence, we carry a considerable responsibility for its good name in the world, though we seem not much inclined to consider the implications of this fact. If we did, some of us might think a little longer about associating the precious Lord with ignorance, intolerance, and belligerent nationalism. These few simple precautions would also make it more attractive to the growing numbers among our people who have begun to reject it as ignorant, intolerant, and belligerently nationalistic, as they might reasonably conclude that it is, if they hear only the loudest voices."
