Subject: RE: BS: What Do you know about St. Patrick?
Speaking about culutural sensitivity: a lovely job was done by the first Russian missionaries in Alaska of teaching the natives about their religion, while incorporating parts of the local customs and such into it.

Then the "Americans" came up from the lower 48 and did their very best to smash the local "heathen" culture and "americanize" them.

Sigh.
