Gray Wolf Spirit

Nez Perce fisherman Levi Carson stands in the moonlight along the banks of the Imnaha River where he fishes every year as his family and people have done for millennia.

When asked once again about the wolves, Levi was quiet for a moment, and then he told me the story of how the Gray Wolf Spirit came to be his grandfather’s spirit guide. He spoke of how his grandfather encountered Gray Wolf Spirit as a young man hunting and trapping on Gray Wolf Mountain in the far Northern part of Nez Perce country. Levi’s grandfather told his grandchildren how Gray Wolf Spirit taught him how to make wise decisions regarding his life and how to honor his people and culture. He strove to live by the wisdom he received that day his entire life.
