Summary
The author tells the story of the encounter between Christianity and the Aboriginal peoples over a span of 450 years, from 1534 to the present. Grant examines both the aims and activities of missionaries of all denominations and the varying responses of Indians at different times and under different circumstances. He describes the introduction of Christianity to the Indians of the various regions of Canada, from New France, including Acadia, to Upper Canada and then to the north and west. He outlines the typical pattern of missionary activity that emerged toward the end of the nineteenth century, traces the origins of outspoken discontent in the twentieth, and analyses the parts played by missionaires and Indians as well as by traders and governments
