Tash Smith is an assistant professor of history at St. Gregory's University in Shawnee, Oklahoma.
"Tash Smith provides a fresh and rich window into Southern Methodism's Indian missions as Oklahoma came to statehood at the turn of the twentieth century. A finely researched and nicely crafted book."--International Bulletin of Missionary Research "An important book. Critical studies of Methodist missionary efforts among Native Americans are in short supply--and mostly outdated in light of significant research on Christianity and American Indians."--Methodist History Book Review "Smith provides a carefully researched and engaging history of the Indian Mission Conference (IMC) in Indian Territory and Oklahoma."--Great Plains Quarterly "This well-researched, engaging story enriches histories of missionary work among Indian peoples and helps explain the tension between the creation of peoples whose religious lives were, according to some, in need of the power of 'civilization' and 'uplift' that could be found in Christianity."--Choice "Tash Smith has made an important contribution not only to the history of American Methodism, but also to the history of Oklahoma and the religious life of its Native American peoples."--Robert L. Dorman, author of Hell of a Vision: Regionalism and the Modern American West "Immersing oneself deeply in state, federal, and church archives requires much nerve and self-discipline, which always produces new visions of a complex, often neglected past. Tash Smith accomplishes this in his deeply researched book."--Robert Keller, author of American Indians and National Parks Tash Smith provides a fresh and rich window into Southern Methodism's Indian missions as Oklahoma came to statehood at the turn of the twentieth century.
