Paleface Jesus not for Indian' WINNIPEG (CP) Ernie Tootoosis, a 58-year-oM reli- jous leader from the Pound- maker Indian reserve at Cut Cnife, Sask., advocates a return jy native people to the spiritual cachings ot their forefathers. Mr. Tootoosis, in an interview iiere, said the spiritual teach- ngs of Indian ancestors have >een almost destroyed by Chris- Sanity. As a steering committe e member of the North American Indian Ecumenical Movement, he has logged miles on his 1971 truck urging some 300 communities to return to the In- dian religion "the way it used to be before the white man came." "The Indian religion is to respect God, to thank Him daily, to live a moral life for your children, in harmony with he said. The teachings ot Christianity are good but "nobody lives by them." Mr. Tootoosis said Christian- ity is for the white man because it came from across the sea.
