In Angola today there is a nationalist movement led by families who claim that they once belonged to the traditional power structure of the ancient Kongo Kingdom that preceded the Portuguese arrival at the end of the fifteenth century. However, Dom Pedro V (1855–c1895) is considered the last of the reigning Kongo kings. The woman and her son pictured here were members of his royal court. Dom Pedro was placed on the throne by the Portuguese, who maintained a small military garrison in the Kongo capital city of São Salvador to protect him from opposing rival factions.

Internationally respected, Chatelain learned Ki-Mbundu (Kimbundu) with the help of Jelemia dia Sabetelu, his Angolan shoemaker. Within two years, Chatelain had published a Kimbundu grammar and translated the Gospel of John into Kimbundu. In 1894, he published Folk-Tales of Angola: Fifty Tales, with Ki-Mbundu Text, Literal English Translation, Introduction, and Notes. It remains a significant record of Mbundu culture and tradition.

Taylor Faces Criticism Usually the missionaries avoided such conflicts among themselves, but the case of Bishop Taylor was the exception. Whereas the Roman Catholics were funded by Portugal, and the other Protestants were funded by mission societies, Taylor was determined to make his missions self-supporting. He had already used this approach in India, South Africa, and South America. He believed that external contributions should be used to set up a mission, but that from then on, it should raise its own food and provide for its own needs just as churches in the United States did.
