Description
Document consists of an article about the community of Ahousaht, B.C., from the United Church periodical, Missionary Monthly.
Curatorial Comment
This article is an example of the cultural assumptions and sense of superiority of the church in its relationship with Aboriginal peoples. The author of the article compares Ahousaht of 1881 with Ahousaht of 1931. He credits Christian work for its "uplifting and regenerating" influence on the Ahousaht community, specifically naming the Residential School as one of the biggest positive influences.
