If we don't get a bishop, we change religion:

Interesting religious dynamics in San Luis Potosí: An entire people changes religion following miserable customer service from the catholic church.

The Pames / Xi'iuy are an indigenous people found in  San Luis Potosí, among the very few surviving in the state. They make up around 3 percent of its population. Following multiple complaints and petitions to the catholic church to send them a priest or bishop, which were all apparently ignored, the Pames decided to simply change their religion toward a denomination that was indeed willing to send a religious minister to their area: The Anglicans.

They lined up to get baptized, and celebrated their new religion as it should be, with a party and dances.
