The Sillery Experiment: A Jesuit-Indian Village in New France, 1637-1663.
Ronda, James P.
American Indian Culture and Research Journal, v3 n1 p1-18 1979
The Christian mission was an attempt to effect massive culture change upon American Indians by the introduction of European social and cultural values and institutions into Indian life. The Sillery Montagnais of Quebec were the subjects of a Jesuit experiment in 1632, which failed because it demanded cultural suicide. (Author/RTS)
