Impact of Christian Missions on Indigenous Cultures: The Real People and the Unreal Gospel
1991 0-88946-072-8
Provides a theological, historical, and methodological analysis of the impact of Christian missions on indigenous cultures by examining Alaska as a case study. Demonstrates that Protestant missionaries carried a "gospel" of Western civilization intended to Americanize the native peoples of Alaska. Describes approaches taken among the Inupiat and Yuit peoples (translated: the "real people.")
