While some wanted to "Americanize" the relocated Indian tribes, others wanted to offer aid. Missionaries set up schools to convert the Indian children to Christianity and to teach them vocational skills. Many Indians preferred to maintain their own beliefs and way of life. Others accepted food and clothing offered by missionaries.
