Chapter 6 focuses on the American Empire in the Philippines between 1903 and 1921, analyzing how religious beliefs continued to play a part in the development and application of American colonial policies on the ground. It begins by examining how American officials relayed information about Filipino Muslims in plays, literature, operas, including a display of Filipinos at the St. Louis World Fair in 1904. It then offers detailed analysis of the policies of military rulers such as Leonard Wood, Hugh Lennox Scott, and John Pershing. It also examines how American missionaries, including Charles Brent, worked alongside colonial officials to convert Filipino Muslims to fit within the larger American colonial apparatus. It concludes with the role of American businessmen who pushed for the United States to make Mindanao a permanent American colony.
