In Thomas Crobsy and the Tsimshian: Small Shoes for Feet TooLarge, Clarence Bolt demonstrates that the Indians were consciousparticipants in the acculturation and conversion process -- as long asthis met their goals -- and not merely passive receivers of theblessings as typically reported by the missionaries. In order tounderstand the complexities of Indian-European contact, Bolt argues,one must look at the reasons for the Indians' behaviour as well asthose of the Europeans. He points out that the Indians activelyinfluenced the manner in which their relationships with the whitepopulation developed, often resulting in a complex interaction in whichthe values of both groups rubbed off on each other.
