American Indian and Alaska Native Newspapers and Periodicals, 1826-1924 - Vol. 1

By Daniel F. Littlefield Jr.; James W. Parins | Go to book overview

Like periodicals with a similar audience, the YMCA Bulletin published religious and inspirational verse as well as encomiums for certain of the "virtues" like thrift, diligence, and hard work. Fiction written with a similar purpose was published as well, and some offerings, like "God to the Rescue," described as the "story of a soul's struggle for the light," rivaled fiction in Catholic youth publications for a blatantly didactic quality. Along these same lines, passages from the Bible were printed, accompanied by a commentary or interpretation. Missionaries sent in reports of "progress" made at various locations in the West; the number of crops raised, souls saved, and buildings erected served as barometers of the missionaries' advances. Articles appeared that warned students of the evils of tobacco and alcohol. During the mid-1920s, an anti-peyote campaign was launched in which the "dangers" to both body and soul were pointed out. Peyote was viewed as a substance that adversely affected the user's health while its use was looked upon as a heathen practice that threatened the inroads Christianity had made among the Indians.

The Bulletin published only one issue--Volume 15, Number 1 ( December 1925)--between May, 1925, and December, 1926, when it next appeared. It appeared as late as February, 1927. At that time, no editor was listed. How long it continued is uncertain.
