(p.47) Chapter 2 The Indigenous Principle on the Ground
Choosing the Jesus Way

Angie Maxwell

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter explores two basic aspects of missionary work: why Natives and whites became Pentecostal missionaries in the first place, and the mundane details of building their missions. Doing this highlights the differences between Native stories of salvation and white stories of being called, and reflects the differing approaches they took in building their missions and specifically their differing interpretations and implementation of the indigenous principle.
