The story of the Muh-he-kan-ne-ok, or the Mahicans (but better known as Mohicans), is a story of human triumph through hardship. Now in Wisconsin, this native American people migrated from their home in the Berkshires of Western Massachussetts via a brief stay in New York state. This is their story, how they lived when the European immigrant population began to grow and encroach on their lands, and how they openly embraced Christianity, in spite of how they were often treated by the third-generation of protestant immigrants. More fascinating is how the Stockbridge Indians, in spite of their treatment by the white settlers, have been very supportive of the American experience and have a long history of fighting patriotically in wars for the United States' cause from the very beginning.
After a brief ancient history of the amazing people called the Muh-he-kan-nuk, Frazier tells the story of the early 18th-century Chief Konkapot and his delegation to the Massachussetts Bay Colony requesting that a missionary be sent to teach them about the Christian religion. A teacher, Mr. Timothy Woodbridge, and the missionary John Sergeant, were commissioned to go and live among the Mahicans to teach them the Christian faith and English civilization. The story is fascinating, and Frazier reports very realistic and deals honestly with both the good and the bad that were both a result and a backlash of missionary endeavors. Most people know the popular history that the Rev. Jonathan Edwards spent part of his time as a missionary to the Stockbridge Indians before his fatal presidency at Princeton.Read more ›
