The first things Native American's learned at "missions" were, according to religion of the mission: * That if you did not convert to that religion you would be tortured and murdered & then have all your property claimed by the church (Papal bull of Pope Clement VII - Catholic) * That if you did convert to that religion, you would surrender all your property to the Church (same Papal bull - Catholic) * That you must "Kill the Indian to save the child" (Christian missionaries / Baptists) * That you were not allowed to wear native clothing, speak native languages, or follow any of your native traditions and Punishment would be beatings, rape, murder or imprisonment (Christian missionaries / Baptists - by US Government order and authorization, continued until 1965) * That the whole of the Christan religion is hypocrisy; the religion says one thing but does another and justifies it by whatever bible reference needed for the action. * That sins are forgivable; by saying a few "Hail Mary's" or "Saying sorry on Sunday, or in your prayers that night" IE: Any action is justified by forgiving even the worse of sins; even if repeated.
