Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     Along the coast of Georgian Bay beside Lake Huron was the homeland of the Wendat. They called it Wendake, the land apart. The Wendat were once part of the Iroquois but had split off. They were a tribe apart, and they were the enemies of the Iroquois.
2     In 1535, the first French traders began trading with the Wendat. Over the next 74 years, the two cultures did a lot of business. In 1609, The French made the Wendat their official, exclusive allies in the New World.
3     It was not long before Roman Catholic Jesuit priests came to live among the Wendat. They believed that they needed to educate the natives in European ways before they could turn them to the Roman Catholic religion.
4     The Jesuits traveled from France to Quebec. They were encouraged by Champlain to take their faith to the Wendat in their own homeland. Several men traveled more than 1,200 miles by canoe and on foot to reach their goal.
