"A Thesis submitted to the Faculty of Graduate Studies in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy, Department of Sociology, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, June 2000".
"This study explores missionary work as a form of colonial governance. .... Based on an analysis of texts found within the Church Missionary Society archives in Manitoba, this study examines the encounter between the Aboriginal peoples of Red River and the Anglican missionaries between 1820 and 1865. The findings show that the sustained attack on Aboriginal spirituality and kinship systems, and particularly the strategies used to transform traditional self-identities, were deeply invasive technologies of governance. The findings also show that Aboriginal resistance played a key role in both the governmental technologies of the missionaries and the eventual outcome of this encounter." -- Abstract, p. i.

Canadian Bishops Slam Anti-Fur Message, Affirm Hunting and Trapping in Native Culture

Anglican bishops from Canada's north have sent a stiff rejoinder to bishops in Great Britain, some of whom have endorsed an anti-fur campaign. Canadian bishops say the publication of a book called "Cruelty and the Christian Conscience: Bishops Say No to Fur," violates the dignity of aboriginal peoples and threatens their way of life.
An estimated 50,000 aboriginal Canadians earn their livelihood from trapping, but they are not a threat to wildlife, the bishops say in a letter. "The most serious threat to wildlife today is not from aboriginal hunters and trappers. It is the increasing destruction of wildlife habitat by major industrial projects. The aboriginal peoples have been in the vanguard of the struggle to protect wildlife and ecosystems in northern Canada."
In fact, the bishops quote the president of the World Wildlife Fund (Canada) to buttress their case: "There is a certain hypocrisy for a group representing white society, which has wiped out hundreds of species, to now interfere with aboriginal cultures who have largely been innocent of such plunders," says Monte Hummel. The bishops' letter adds: "We find this morally unacceptable."
The letter, which is to be sent to all British bishops, is signed by the Primate of Canada, Archbishop Michael Peers, and by Bishop Tom Morgan, chair of the "Council of the North" -- bishops of nine northern dioceses with many aboriginal congregations. It affirms hunting and trapping as part of a "spiritual way of life, deeply rooted in cultural traditions."
The bishops ask their British counterparts to join in "supporting the aboriginal peoples struggle to protect their cultural traditions."
For further information contact: Doug Tindal, Director of Communications, (416) 540-3653; Tom Morgan, Bishop of Saskatchewan, (306) 763-2455.
Notes
The Most Rev. and Rt. Hon. George L. Carey
Archbishop of Canterbury
Lambeth Palace, London SE1 7JU England
Dear Archbishop Carey:
We are writing to you on behalf of the Council of the North in response to the Lynx publication, "Cruelty and Christian Conscience: Bishops Say No to Fur." The Council members include the bishops of nine Anglican dioceses with many aboriginal congregations.
In 1986 the Council issued a joint statement with the Roman Catholic Bishops in northern Canada expressing our solidarity with the aboriginal peoples in their struggle to protect fur-trapping as a way of life.
Our relationship with aboriginal peoples goes back well over 100 years. Hunting and trapping are more than a source of income. They are a spiritual way of life deeply rooted in cultural traditions. We have learned much about creation and the relationship between human beings, society and nature from our aboriginal church members.
The harvesting of wildlife is integral to the land ethic of aboriginal peoples. We affirm the biblical relationship with creation expressed by them. They have traditionally lived in harmony with their environment, harvesting wildlife while practising their own effective methods of conservation. The land and the wildlife it supports have given the aboriginal peoples their identity as distinct societies. Aboriginal leaders have stated that "traditional resource harvesting activities help us to reinforce our traditional social and cultural values, and ensures the continuation of these values for succeeding generations.
The most serious threat to wildlife today is not from aboriginal hunters and trappers. It is the increasing destruction of wildlife habitat by major industrial projects. The aboriginal peoples have been in the vanguard of the struggle to protect wildlife and ecosystems in northern Canada.
The current anti-fur campaign by Lynx and other organizations threatens the aboriginal peoples and their way of life. For thousands of years Inuit and Indians have survived by hunting and fishing according to the rhythms of animal life and the changing seasons.
In 1988, according to Environment Canada statistics, half of the estimated $1 billion fur industry represents the primary and secondary livelihood of 50,000 aboriginal Canadian trappers.
Aboriginal peoples are not out to destroy animal populations and to inflict pain and suffering. They have deep spiritual and cultural bonds with animals and retain a sense of the sacredness of all life. When an animal is taken the hunter gives thanks because that animal has given its life for the people.
The anti-fur campaign violates the dignity of aboriginal peoples and their traditions. It has given little evidence of genuine sensitivity towards aboriginal peoples in northern Canada. In fact, says Monte Hummel, president of World Wildlife Fund (Canada): "There is a certain degree of hypocrisy for a group representing white society, which has wiped out hundreds of species, to now interfere with aboriginal cultures who have largely been innocent of such plunders." We find this to be morally unacceptable.
We urge you to join with us in supporting the aboriginal peoples in their struggle to protect their cultural traditions.
Yours sincerely, Thomas O. Morgan, Bishop of Saskatchewan, Chairman, Council of the North; Michael G. Peers, Archbishop and Primate.
This letter was personally sent to all 41 bishops who signed the Lynx pledge plus all other Anglican bishops in the United Kingdom; a total of 201 bishops.

"1994 has been named by the United Nations as the International Year of the Family. A National Convocation of Native people in the Anglican Church of Canada in August 1993 stressed the need for strengthening families to bring healing in their communities. .... In keeping with the Year of the Family theme of the United Nations and in response to the expressed need of Native communities, the focus of this resource is strengthening the family. The workshop participants have had a variety of experiences. Phyllis Keeper served as a community teacher before becoming an ordained priest. Two members of St. Helen's parish participated: Elsie Monkman, a teacher who grew up in the rural community of Matheson Island; and Margaret Borley, a woman who enjoys working in Sunday school. Arlene Dieter-Grambois, recently ordained in the United Church, is an inner city outreach worker in Regina. Artist Annette Loutit is a student-leader a the Dr. Jessie Saulteaux Centre and a single parent deeply committed to hearing voices of youth. Jean Olthuis, Editor of 'Seeds & Sowers', assisted in planning and leading the workshop". -- Editorial.

The stories here relate to brokenness, loss and healing. Some stories relate to residential schools experience because that was formative in the lives of many participants .... Residential school experience touches young and old. It might be especially important for children and youth to hear these stories to help them better understand the brokenness in their own families and communities, and the theme is especially relevant to our spiritual journey in the Lent/Easter season, moving from brokenness to wholeness". -- Editorial.

Jean Olthuis, Editor of 'Seeds and Sowers' assisted planning and development". -- Editorial.
"Thos resource responds to an urgent need for materials; but more, it carries forward a cision of working in community to affirm integrations of biblical story and Aboriginal culture. .... The stories offer an holistic approach to life, an understanding of the rhythms of seasons, cycles of life and our relationship to the Creator and all 'creatures'." -- Editorial.
