Resurrecting the Past: The California Mission Myth, PPB

Price: $18.99

Description

This original, eye-opening and thought provoking book traces the marginalization of California Indians within the California mission mythology and critiques the romanticized-narrative still presented today at many California mission sites as well as the manner by which the history of the missions is widely taught in California s schools. Through case studies of topics including Native resistance, labor, death and disease, this work demonstrates the active roles Native people played in the development of California history alongside the fictionalized history that their mission experiences have been presented as.
