Mission schoolsThere is a final, far more tragic means to convert the people. Kidnap the children.
- Rechristen them with English Christian names, forbid the use of their own names.
- Punish them for speaking their own language, or grab them when they are young enough not to have learned it very well.
- Force them to live at the Mission School and only visit home 1 or 2 days for the Christian Christmas.
- Cut their hair, strip them of their clothing and religious artifacts, and denigrate the artifacts as uncivilized, backwards, or "primitive".
- Do this all when they are young enough to not fight back.
