The Missionary as Cultural Revolutionary: Mission Planning and Indian Response in Early America

Using the resources of the Center for the History of the American Indian at the Newberry Library, P.I. proposes to undertake a program of reading and research focused on missionary activity and Indian responses in 17th and 18th century North America. Specifically, the study will explore both the mission thought and action of the Mayhew family, John Eliot, and Eleazar Wheelock. It will investigate in depth the complex varieties of Indian responses to mission invasion, as this has been perhaps the most neglected aspect of mission history.
