"Civilization" and Transculturation: The Field Matron Program and Cross-Cultural Contact.
Emmerich, Lisa E.
American Indian Culture and Research Journal, v15 n4 p33-47 1991
From 1892 to 1938, the Office of Indian Affairs sent white "field matrons" to teach domestic skills and Victorian virtues to reservation women. However, field matron reports indicate that some developed close relationships with Indian women and families, appreciation for tribal culture, and an activist definition of their duties. (SV)
