History Of The Ojebway Indians With Especial Reference To Their Conversion To Christianity

Peter Jones

History of the Ojebway Indians with Especial Reference to Their Conversion to Christianity is a book written by Peter Jones, a member of the Ojibwe tribe who converted to Christianity and became a Methodist minister. The book provides a detailed account of the history, culture, and beliefs of the Ojibwe people, one of the largest indigenous groups in North America. Jones begins by describing the origins of the Ojibwe people and their migration to the Great Lakes region. He then delves into their traditional way of life, including their social structure, customs, and religious practices. Jones also discusses the impact of European contact on the Ojibwe, including the fur trade and the arrival of Christian missionaries. The latter half of the book focuses on Jones' own experiences as a Christian missionary among the Ojibwe. He describes the challenges he faced in trying to convert the Ojibwe to Christianity, including their deep attachment to their traditional beliefs and practices. Jones also recounts the successes he had in establishing Methodist churches among the Ojibwe and the impact of Christianity on their way of life. Overall, History of the Ojebway Indians with Especial Reference to Their Conversion to Christianity is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the history and culture of the Ojibwe people, as well as the impact of Christianity on indigenous communities in North America.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
