Oblate Missions to the Dene, 1847-1921

Book - 1995
Rate this:
Catholic missionaries originally saw the Mackenzie River as the heart of a vast kingdom of souls to be gained for God, whatever the claims of any other power to sovereignty. The Dene did not share this view. Martha McCarthy balances Dene oral tradition with documentary sources to explore this important and difficult period in the developing relationships between Europeans and First Nations peoples in Canada.
