Missionaries, Cherokees, Arkansas


Report on three Moravian church missions to Native Americans including a brief section on their work among the Cherokee Indians of Arkansas. The German-language report was issued in 1842 at Bethlehem, Pennsylvania by the directors of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel among the Heathen.

The Native American missions served by the Moravian or United Brethren church were located at New Fairfield, in Upper Canada, Westfield, Missouri, and among the Cherokee in Arkansas. As early as 1740, the Moravians had begun to evangelize the Cherokee and by 1801 had sent teachers to reside among them.
