When Loolwkin was about 10 or 12 he was sent by his father to go to a white missionary to learn about the wonders about the bible, Henry H. Spalding (1803-1874) in Lapwai, Idaho
Chief Sulktalthscocum thought that this mission would have a strong impact on his son.
Moses and his father's buffalo-hunting party spent man months and years going on expeditions across the Rockies and into Montana.
At Montana, Blackfeet warriors attacked the tribe, however Moses was too young to fight so he was sent to gather ammunition and water.
While Moses was collecting the resources a Blackfeet warrior came across him.
