Two other Native Americans on board were Rabbit’s Skin Leggings and No Horns On His Head. These two Nez Perce were the homeward-bound remnants of a four-man delegation which had come to St. Louis to inquire after the White Man’s religion. The result of their visit was a call for Christian missionaries to bring the truth to the heathen and to open the Oregon Territory.
