The American Southwest has been a theater for continuous mission work since Spanish colonization in the late 15th century. The Journal of Missionary Linguistics tells the story of two female missionaries to the 1950s Navajo reservation and their attempt to produce a youth bible pageant. The play explores the missionary psyche, gospel translation, and the role of the Other in American identity.
