Featured in  My House of Dreams

Noki:  is a young Native American whose only desire is to work with his father making the arrow and spear points his tribe needs. That changes when the mysterious Spaniards invade their territory, build structures on land that was once free and open, and teach a religion that Noki cannot understand. Then sickness invades and shatters the life his people have always known.



Father Antonio: was a living person, sent by Fr. deLasuen to build a new mission between San Diego and San Juan Capistrano. I have taken the few facts I could find and tried to show both sides of this tragic story as fairly as I could.

I researched the Payomkawichum (now called Luiseņo's) as much as I could and related their culture as accurately as possible while still telling the story.

Eti: Noki's brother, always inquisitive and impulsive.

Kawawish: the tribe's shaman.

Tahmahwit: Noki and Eti's mother.

Kwalah: Noki and Eti's father.

Maria: a mission Indian and Noki's friend.
