Biographical history

Anglican mission work among native people began in Alberta with Rev. George McKay's arrival in Fort Macleod in 1878. He opened St. Peter's Mission on the Peigan reserve. In 1880 Rev. Samuel Trivett started the Blood Indian mission near Fort Macleod. Rev. J.W. Tims began work on the Blackfoot (Siksika) reserve near Gleichen in 1883. He acted as general superintendent and financial agent for all the missions, jointly referred to as the Calgary Indian Missions. Rev. Robert Inkster started the Sarcee (Tsuu T'ina) mission in 1886. Work on the Indian missions involved three areas: evangelism, and the management of hospitals and residential schools. The missions were the responsibility of the Church Missionary Society and later the Missionary Society Church of England in Canada.
