In “Church,” the company sets up camp at a pagoda that seems to function as a church. A few monks bring them supplies. Kiowa explains that he was brought up Christian and carries a Bible with him everywhere. He is made uneasy by camping at the pagoda, arguing that it is bad luck to camp at a religious site.
