Overview

"[Parkman] remains one of the greatest historians, an imaginative writer who demonstrated that narrative history can be both captivating to the reader and historically accurate."-Howard Lamar, Reader's Encyclopedia of the American West. Distinguished by Francis Parkman's pictorial style, The Jesuits in North America opens with the arrival of French missionaries in Canada in 1632. The stage is set for the aggravation of old rivalries between the Huron and the Iroquois Indians. The Jesuits try to ensure the loyalty of the Hurons, suppliers of fur to the French, but find them resistant to religious conversion. The Iroquois, even more resistant, add the French to their list of enemies. Other factions enlist on one side or the other-French soldiers and anti-Catholic English, for example-but the dramatic pulse of Parkman's narrative is provided by the Jesuits earnestly matriculating among the Indians, undergoing great hardship and occasionally embracing martyrdom. Conrad E. Heidenreich is a professor of geography at York University in Ontario and the author of Huronia: A History and Geography of the Huron Indians, 1600-1650 and other works. José António Brandão is the author of "Your fyre shall burn no more": Iroquois Policy toward New France and Its Native Allies to 1701 Nebraska 1997.

    The author and the Jesuits who labored to convert the various tribes repeatedly distorted images of the Wendat (Huron) and the other tribes encountered in order to justify the continued efforts in North America. The constant onslaught of adjectives like "savages, filthy, smelly," etc. continues ad nauseum. They ignore that America wasn't discovered in the 1400s by Europeans, but by the native Americans more than 15,000 years earlier. Today research indicates North America may have been settled more than twice that many years ago. They ignore the Democratic forms of government developed by the tribes. They ignore that the Indians didn't need a new religion as they embraced believes that predated Christianity and even Egyptian and Early Greek beliefs by thousands of years. The Jesuits, the civilian government, in the form of Champlain, were there to exploit America's vastly superior resources and steal the land from the "savages" who had lived in harmony with nature for many millenia. They took the resources and repaid the Indians with trinkets, beads and diseases that wiped out entire tribes because they lacked any built-up immunities. The Europeans also brought a new animal to America, one the continent could easily do without - the Norway Rat - one of the major spreaders of disease in Europe. All of the negatives are glossed over as part of the ongoing European efforts at complete genocide of native Americans.
