Over the century between the first Oblate mission to the Canadian central Arctic in 1867 and the radical shifts brought about by Vatican II, the region was the site of complex interactions between Inuit, Oblate missionaries, and Grey Nuns – interactions that have not yet received the attention they deserve. Enriching archival sources with oral testimony, Frédéric Laugrand and Jarich Oosten provide an in-depth analysis of conversion, medical care, education, and vocation in the Keewatin region of the Northwest Territories. They show that while Christianity was adopted by the Inuit and major trans- formations occurred, the Oblates and the Grey Nuns did not eradicate the old traditions or assimilate the Inuit, who were caught up in a process they could not yet fully understand. The study begins with the first contact the Inuit had with Christianity in the Keewatin region and ends in the mid- 1960s, when an Inuk woman joined the Grey Nuns and two Inuit brothers became Oblate missionaries. Bringing together many different voices, perspectives, and experiences, and emphasizing the value of multivocality in understanding this complex period of Inuit history, Inuit, Oblate Missionaries, and Grey Nuns in the Keewatin, 1865–1965 highlights the subtle nuances of a long and complex interaction, showing how salvation and suffering were intertwined. Frédéric B. Laugrand is professor of anthropology at Université Laval and fnrs Fellow at Université catholique de Louvain in Belgium. Jarich G. Oosten (1945–2016) was associate professor of anthropology at Leiden University and the author of numerous books, including Inuit Shamanism and Christianity: Transitions and Transformation in the Twentieth Century with Frédéric B. Laugrand. In twentieth-century Canada, mainline Protestants, fundamentalists, liberal nationalists, monarchists, conservative Anglophiles, and left-wing intellectu- als had one thing in common: they all subscribed to a centuries-old world view that Catholicism was an authoritarian, regressive, untrustworthy, and foreign force that did not fit into a democratic, British nation like Canada. Analyzing the connections between anti-Catholicism and national identity in English Canada, Not Quite Us examines the consistency of anti-Catholic tropes in the public and private discourses of intellectuals, politicians, and clergymen, such as Arthur Lower, Eugene Forsey, Harold Innis, C.E. Silcox, F.R. Scott, George Drew, and Emily Murphy, along with those of private Canadians. Challenging the misconception that an allegedly secular, civic, and more tolerant nationalism that emerged excised its Protestant and British cast, Kevin Anderson determines that this nationalist narrative was itself steeped in an exclusionary Anglo-Protestant understanding of history and values. He shows that over time, as these ideas were dispersed through editorials, cartoons, correspondence, literature, and lectures, they influenced Canadians’ intimate perceptions of themselves and their connection to Britain, the ethno-religious composition of the nation, the place of religion in public life, and national unity. “Not Quite Us is an important and original book that adds a crucial dimension to our understanding of inequality and exclusion in twentieth- century Canada.” Lynne Marks, University of Victoria Kevin P. Anderson is an instructor in history and Canadian studies at the University of Calgary and in the Department of Humanities at Mount Royal University. 2 8 M Q U P S P R I N G 2 0 1 9 S P E C I F I C AT I O N S June 2019 -5,7a755pl7ln,p7n 4p-i-l£ bAU1 4p-i-l£ Dc1 kpsiaa 6o602 -5,7a755pl7ln,s7- 4Ssliaac bAU1 4Ssliaac Dc1 kSaaiaa $.9ru ni5l B -i5l nha66 Sa5 6u9r931 s xo63 0g99T omot.oN.0 S P E C I F I C AT I O N S ($Ht..7’d008L3 crdCt03 t8 ru0 @t3r92f 9E w0.t:t98 March 2019 -5,7a755pl7lnll7p 4phi-l£ bAU1 4phi-l£ Dc1 ksni-- 6o602 -5,7a755pl7lnlh7n 4Ssaiaac bAU1 4Ssaiaac Dc1 k-niaa $.9ru n B - pna66 5 6u9r93 0g99T omot.oN.0 Inuit, Oblate Missionaries, and Grey Nuns in the Keewatin, 1865–1965 frédéric b. laugrand and jarich g. oosten A lively introduction to an encounter between two completely different civilizations in the context of Christianization, hospitalization, and education.
