Smohala

North American - A 19th C. Shaman. He founded the cult of the Dreamers in the early part of the century. Another shaman, Moses, attacked him and thought he had killed him but Smohala survived and was rescued from the river. He took advantage of this episode to claim that he had, in fact, been drowned, had gone to heaven where his spirit had talked with the Great Spirit and had been sent back to earth to spread the Great Spirit's teachings. Sometimes known as Smohala.
