Peter was a young Native American of the Aleut tribe who inhabited the Northwest and Alaska. He converted to the Orthodox faith thru the preaching of the first Russian Orthodox missionaries who arrived in Alaska in 1774. In 1812 the Russian- American Company set up a trading post in northern California, where Russians and Aleuts farmed and traded to supply the needs of the Alaskans; Peter was one of these. The Spanish, who at the time ruled California, suspected the Russians of territorial ambitions and in 1815 captured about twenty Orthodox Aleuts and took them to San Francisco.

News and Events
Their Descendants Remember
When Charles [Khalil] Laham read the last issue of ‘Calling to Remembrance’ he called to tell me that one of the donors I had listed to the ‘Great Project’ was his Grandfather. Khalil Jiries Laham gave $50 to the project that Bishop Raphael (Hawaweeny) and Fr. George (Maloof) founded to build a Syrian Orthodox Church in Boston. His gift in 1904 was equivalent to approximately $1300 in today’s economy. It represented about two month’s income; an exceedingly generous gift.
