Summary or Abstract : This dissertation examines the agency of African educators in the development of Africa Inland Mission (AIM) schools in what is now northwest Tanzania from 1909 through the early 1970s. The time period studied in this dissertation includes the colonial and post independence era. In addition to archival documents, the study is based on the oral histories of Sukuma educators who were involved in AIM mission schools. The author interviewed more than 30 Sukuma educators and AIM missionaries. Arriving in Sukumaland before World War I, AIM missionaries adopted the Nassa Mission Station that was first established by the Church Mission Society (CMS). AIM educational and evangelical work expanded through the work of the Sukuma graduates of the Nassa Mission School and other Sukuma educators in subsequent years, in examining this historical development, the dissertation clarifies how AIM polices, Sukuma culture, and the resilience of Sukuma educators shaped the progress of ATM's education programs. The dissertation relies heavily on the oral histories of Sukuma educators to make two significant points. First, the agency of Africans in the development of AIM mission schools and church planting began with the Sukuma nangis who assumed responsibility for teaching basic literacy and trained many future Sukuma educators. Second, the involvement of Sukuma educators in AIM mission schools is an important part of how Christianity and Western education spread in Sukumaland. Although the dissertation reviews the literature and includes archival material, the oral histories of Sukuma educators, their stories and reflections, breaks with traditional histories of mission education in Africa. Many studies have portrayed Africans as victims showing missionaries either as heroes, agents of imperialism, or human vehicles of a hegemonic worldview. This dissertation expands upon and changes the conventional discourse on the history of western missionaries in Africa by showing the importance of situating the educational history of AIM mission education within not only the written histories of AIM, but also through the voices of the Sukuma people who had agency and partnered with AIM missionaries in developing mission schools in Sukumaland..
