Documenting the Dakota: Wigwam Trails

This story about Lucy Margaret Baker is taken from a publication entitled Wigwam Trails, which is part of the Campbell Innes fonds.  In this publication, the story of Lucy Baker’s missionary work is written as a children’s story, and is told as a conversation between a First Nations child and his grandmother.  Despite the obviously paternalistic tone of this story, it does convey some of the important challenges that Baker faced in her missionary work amongst the Dakota.
