Product Description

As missionaries, the Jesuits have had a long history of interaction with cultures foreign to that of European Roman Catholicism. In the 17th century in China, Japan and India, adapting to the cultures of those lands, speaking their indigenous languages, adopting native clothing, and taking part in many of the native customs of the people they evangelized. The Jesuit Mission To The Lakota Sioux: A Study Of Pastoral Ministry, 1886-1945 is author Ross Enoch's description of the Jesuits mission among the Lakota Sioux in Sough Dakota in the late 19th and early 20th century. During this historic mission, the Jesuits sought to preserve many aspects of the Lakota culture, successfully building a Native lay ministry and encouraging the Lakotas to evangelize the various Sioux bands and other Native American nations. They help organize the annual Catholic Sioux Congress (managed by Lakota laity), which also incorporated many traditional Lakota customs. The Jesuit Mission To The Lakota Sioux is exceptional and a valuable addition to Church history and Native American studies.
