Slave Version of the Scriptures

Slave Version Of The Scriptures The Slave is spoken by the Indians of Mackenzie River, Canada. A translation of the gospels into Slave was made by bishop Bompas, and printed by the British and Foreign Bible Society in 1883 in the syllabic character, the proofs having been read by the Reverend W.D. Reeve, archdeacon of Chippewyan Fort. The syllabic character was adopted because, as Mr. Reeve says, "the Roman character is useful for those who have learned English, for whites and others desirous of teaching the Indians, but for the Indians themselves the syllabic edition is the more useful." (B.P.)
