Mincaye, one of the Waodani warriors who attacked and killed Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, and three other American missionaries in 1956, died on Tuesday in his home village in Ecuador. He was between 88 and 91 years old. Mincaye converted to Christianity and became known for preaching to other tribes in the region. Jim Elliot’s wife, Elisabeth, memorialized the story in her book Through Gates of Splendor, which later became a movie.
