About this product
- DescriptionChristian missions and missionaries have had a distinctive role in Canada's cultural history. With Canadian Missionaries, Indigeus Peoples, Alvyn Austin and Jamie S. Scott have brought together new and established Canadian scholars to examine the encounters between Christian (Roman Catholic and Protestant) missionaries and the indigeus peoples with whom they worked in nineteenth- and twentieth-century domestic and overseas missions. This tightly integrated collection is divided into three sections. The first contains essays on missionaries and converts in western Canada and in the arctic. The essays in the second section investigate various facets of the Canadian missionary presence and its legacy in east Asia, India, and Africa. The third section examines the motives and methods of missionaries as important contributors to Canadian museum holdings of artefacts from Huronia, Kahnawaga, and Alaska, as well as China and the South Pacific. Broadly adopting a postcolonial perspective, Canadian Missionaries, Indigeus Peoples contributes greatly to the understanding of missionaries t only as purveyors of western religious values, but also as vehicles for cultural exchange between Native and n-Native Canadians, as well as between Canadians and the indigeus peoples of other countries.
