It is a pretty interesting story. The Jumano groups (lots of smaller groups) were absorbed into Apache, Comanche and Wichita groups.
IN many places, Catholicism was very easily accepted by Native Groups, because of the tenets of the Faith and the ritual and the large engagement of familial ties. Godparentage was something already practiced by Native groups. Areas where the Jesuits first reached had less imposed conversion, unlike the Spanish areas, The Spanish method also required abandonment of their traditional lifeways, while the Jesuit plan was far more flexible in its approach and melded with the traditional.
I thought some of you might find this interesting as well. :-)
