Baptist Mission

Although I think a majority of people were descent folks and thought they were doing the right thing, it still breaks your heart to see images from the past where very powerful people wanted to erase the native peoples culture and roots. Never was much for religion myself. 35mm slide. 1960s. Found in a junk shop in Summers, Arkansas.
