On October 18, 1964, a new monastery was founded in Dubuque, Iowa. Our Lady of the Mississippi Abbey was founded under the branch of the Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance, also known as Trappistines. Thirteen sisters left their community of Mt St Mary Abbey in Wrentham, Massachusetts and were led by Mother Angela, the abbess, to start a new monastery. At first the foundation was to be set in Argentina, however after the project fell through, the abbot of New Melleray invited the sisters to Dubuque. A property of land, called Hickory Hill, was for sale and was purchased as the site for the new monastery.
There is no doubt that John Dickinson succeeded in uniting the large number of people against British rule but he failed to convince the blacks against British rule. At that time, majority of the blacks were living the life of slaves. On 20 April 1773, four slaves in Boston send the petition to the legislature urging that they be set free so that they could return to the Africa. Unfortunately,
Roger Williams might be well notorious for being the new founder of the state Rhode Island. When he first settled a colony in Narragansett, a settlement in Rhode Island, one of his many principles was that there should be a separation between church and state colonies. Many individuals made the decision to move to Rhode Island–– due to their religious freedom. Jews, Baptists, and even Quakers decided to join this movement. A good proportion of settlers confiscated lands, which belonged to Native Americans; however, Roger Williams made an impactful decision that no one should be allowed to confiscate them.

Prior to the English landing on the Eastern shores in 1607 of what is now known as the United States of America, Native Americans dominated areas from coast to coast [of the future nation]. Many of these tribes had built their own form of society, influenced by maternal dominance, agriculture, fishing, hunting, trade, and religion (Foner, Chapter 1).Unfortunately, their way of life was altered as soon as Europeans began emigrating and landing on the Americas, and began taking over the land Native Americans had possessed for centuries. Although weakened by a wave of disease, many tribes showed acts of resistance against their invaders, in disputes like the Pueblo Revolt, King Philip 's’ War, and Worcester v. Georgia. These acts of resistance
Their strong connections to their culture, like farming the Three Sisters, matrilineality, and their native languages were all lost. Today, only 7% of the Haudenosaunee population speak their native language. Furthermore, the Dutch sent many Jesuit missionaries into the 6 tribes, starting with the Mohawk and converted one-third of the population into Catholic. This deterred many Haudenosaunee people from learning their own faiths, and has resulted in significant cultural loss. Additionally, the Haudenosaunee also changed their food habits and began to live “European” houses rather than their traditional longhouses.
As they intermarried with the indignant African tribes their influence spread. Due to their religious influence, the Jumouia tribe in the country gained political prominence.

Nwoye prior to the European colonists didn’t fully go along with everything his father Okonkwo had taught him to continue his clan ways and traditions. The invasion of the European settlers threatened to extinguish the need for the mastery of traditional methods for the igbo people. This reason is why the invasion was disliked by many, but some clan members chose to go about this impact with a positive outlook and were willing to adapt to the new culture, christianity. Nwoye chose to be open minded and seeked acceptance towards the new culture instead of continuing to try and follow the cultural norms of his own religion. Ultimately Nwoye Converted from his religion of the igbo community to the religion of the European settlers.
With the Portuguese in Indonesia, they converted many people into Christians and Catholics. In fact, “the Portuguese introduced Roman Catholicism to Indonesia” (Religion in Indonesia). After the Portuguese conquered Malacca they went looking further and found the land where the Sultan of Ternate lived. In this area, many of the Portuguese priests decided to stay there. “In 1534 to many following years, Portuguese priests were active into converting the people there into Catholicism” (Christianity in Indonesia).
Natives tried to resist and defend their land, but the white’s weapons were too advanced. The idea of selling land was misunderstood because of language differences.

Throughout history, religion has played an important role in the lives of the English settlers; many people believed in different religions, and this has caused problems within the New World colonies. Religion was strictly enforced, and punished according to your beliefs. When the English settlers decided to set sail to find refuge from the religious restriction, they were hopeful for a new life. People did not want to stay somewhere where they did not believe in the religion that was practiced, for it was punishable by death.
Although pursuit of religious freedom lied at the very foundation of New England, in the middle and southern colonies it played a smaller role, and instead democracy and slavery respectively played the primary roles. The New England colonies, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland were conceived and established “as plantations of religion”. Some settlers who arrived in these areas came for
In chapter 10, we are giving a history of the kongo period, the kongo period refers to the importation of the kongo people after the spanish had already taking over Louisiana. Many of the reasons why the kongo people were imported was because they were part of the most heavily slaved territory in africa and the longest slaved in a long period of time. The influence of the Kongo people could be link to present day Cubans, as they shared many common traditions, specifically the religion known as palos. The Kong people also influence the tradition of jazz funeral, they believe that the dead had to be send off with music as they didn't want them to be sad as they enter the afterlife.
In the late nineteenth century, Vietnam fell into the hands of the French who colonized to fuel their industrialization and improve their economy, becoming part of French Indochina which included Laos and Cambodia. Instead of accepting French rule, the Vietnamese resisted. Under the leadership of Ho Chi Minh, the Viet Minh was established and rebelled against the French. French rule impacted Vietnam greatly, and the effects of their control can still be seen to this day. Profit was the driving factor that led to France’s rule over Vietnam; using the mistreatment of their Catholic missionaries as an excuse, France took control of Vietnam in 1862.
