Description: From "The Story of My Life", by Egerton Ryerson, ed. J. G. Hodgins (Toronto: William Briggs, 1883). On the left appears the school and Council House, and on the right the Church. All too often the missionaries gave little allowance to the ancient customs and beliefs of Indian students in their schools. The illustration and descriptive text are from "The Mississauga of New Credit", by Donald B. Smith with the assistance of Bryan LaForme, Volume 22 of Canada's Visual History, from the National Museum of Man, National Museums of Canada and the National Film Board of Canada. Description as of February 2014.
