For the second time in a year, an American Indian has been elected an Episcopal bishop. The Rev. Steven Charleston, 41, an Oklahoma-born Choctaw, was elected bishop of Alaska. Another American Indian, Steven Plummer, was elected a year ago as bishop of Navajoland, a mission diocese based in Farmington, N.M., covering Navajo reservations in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.
