She argues that it is symptomatic of the ambiguities of this relationship that many Christian Khoekhoe ultimately rebelled against the South African colony. Across the white settler empire missionaries brokered bargains - rights in exchange for cultural change, for example - that brought Aboriginal peoples within the aegis of empire but, ultimately, were only partially and ambiguously fulfilled."--Jacket." ;
