Missionary endeavors in New France were different from those in Maryland and Latin America. French fur traders were mainly interested in commerce with the Native American, not his land. Killer diseases became especially rampant, working against Christian missionaries because they were linked to Baptism and the death of Indians. Liquor provided by the French was a major negative element. From New France and Northern Mexico, Jesuit explorers such as Kino, Marquette, and du Ru fanned out, seeking converts and adventure.
