20. DISCUSS KUNA MATERIALS (4/22/04) Interpreting Father Gassó & Miss Coope As with all documents, must interpret with care; nothing self-evident. E.g. Coope left out any mention of a man who accompanied her on first trip. Sometimes need information to connect different sources: Coope mentions Chief Joe Harding, how would you know that same as man Gassó called Soo? “Ignacio” really named Inatoikinya As with Jesuit relations, have to think about goals of what missionaries wrote: both were trying to get support back at home. But Coope had a less restricted audience, so more discrete. Gassó very frank, because he thought only priests etc. would see his diary. What were differences in their core methods? Gassó catechism, oral drill. Suspicion of writing. Was there event for her like catechism? Sunday school. Why was her attitude towards school and literacy so different? Protestant need for unmediated relationship with Bible. What was Gassó’s stance towards adults versus children? What were differences in their attitudes towards how different Indians were?
