(Presbyterian Historical Society Publications, No 31) When Presbyterian missionaries arrived in the Southwest in the mid-nineteenth century, they were confident of the superiority of their own culture and religion and turned to "Christian education" to bring the region's Native Americans, Hispanic Catholics, and Mormons into the American mainstream. By 1890 they operated more than seventy-five mission schools in the region, and for years between 4,000 and 5,000 young people enrolled in the schools annually.
