This perception seems to have amplified the view that indigenous peoples’ cultures needed to be replaced. In this regard, James Axtell (1985: 25) suggests that the English missionaries’ view of ‘native peoples as savage who needed to be remade into real human beings…was exacerbated by their insular conviction of the superiority of their own culture and religion not only to that of the Native Americans but also that of other European nations, which made them especially intolerant of any retention of local ways’.

Here Axtell interestingly contrasts the English missionaries with the Jesuits, who met with more success in the Americas using an approach that took a ‘softer’ view of indigenous cultures, allowing for Christianity to be added to elements of indigenous culture.
Indeed, even though the ‘nationalization’ of Anglicanism in the United States after the Revolution had shown a path towards greater autonomy for the church in BNA, and even though it had been accorded a Bishopric, church elites continued to hew closely to the ‘mother church’ and strenuously avoided straying too far towards independence. This loyalist tendency characterized Canadian Anglicanism well into the second half of the twentieth century, much as it characterized Anglicanism in the other settler colonies.
