Mission Among the BlackfeetBook - 1971
Volume 112 in the Civilization of the American Indian Series "This volume examines the effects of Catholic and Protestant missionary activity upon the Blackfeet from the 1840s through the 1960s. A major thesis is that missions had the potential of serving as centers conducive to social order and identity for Indians undergoing rapid cultural change, but that they turned out in fact to be one of the more effective means of destroying the Indian world."--Western Historical Quarterly
