To read between the lines here: of course everything that the tribes did was mysterious, the English did nothing to try to understand these people. Well, actually, they did “understand” them in that the tribes did not (and still don’t) want western progress. Their faith to them is perfect but to us is backward. Neither side will see the other side and so everyone will always be mistrusted. Them us, too.
