Abstract

Walpole Island, a Canadian Indian reserve located in the St. Clair River delta thirty miles northeast of Detroit, Michigan, was the setting for a significant religious debate between two Ojibwa Indian leaders and a Jesuit missionary on 31 July 1844. Their conflicting points of view, expounded over two and a half hours before an attentive Indian audience, is clearly presented in a letter written six months later by the missionary participant, Father Pierre Chazelle, to a close friend in the Jesuit order.
