Quanah Parker is one of the first leaders of the Native American Church. He taught that the sacred peyote medicine was the sacrament given to the Indian peoples and was to be used with water when taking communion. Peyote was used in pre-Columbian times to commune with the spirit world and also as a medicine. Peyotists believe in a Supreme God and call for Native American brotherly love, family care, self-support through work, avoidance of alcohol and recreational drug use.
