About: This article draws on the history of Bahá’í teaching activities on and off Indian reservations and reviews the early Bahá’í literature directed toward American Indian Baha’is with the goal of understanding and learning from that history. The teaching work conducted by the Central States Regional American Indian Teaching is examined to show examples of what worked, what didn’t, and why. Conclusions are drawn as to what behaviors and actions are needed now to reinvigorate the indigenous teaching field.
