Title

A Visit from the Blackfeet Delegation

Description

The text on the back of the photo reads: "[Native American Chiefs] came to Mission to inspect the church with purpose of building one for their own tribe situated across the mts. When they learned that the Frs. had built it from proceeds of sale of their own horses, the [Native Americans] returned home and invited the Fr. in charge of them to go and do likewise—He is still thinking about it.” In the novel, D'Arcy McNickle is very honest about how many Native American chiefs at first felt as if the Jesuit Missionaries could help to build their societies at a time when the government left them isolated on land with little resources.
