Dr. Michelle Lorimer, author of Resurrecting the Past: The California Mission Myth will explore the creation and popularization of romanticized narratives of mission history in California. Spanish colonization left a lasting impact on Native communities throughout the Americas -- with missions as the physical reminders of this tumultuous period.

Promoted as tourist sites, narratives constructed around Spanish mission ruins in the early 1900s focused on the lives and experiences of prominent foreigners while marginalizing Native experiences and perspectives. Dr. Lorimer will discuss the development of this constructed past in popular culture and will explore the many ways that mission history has overshadowed the central role of Native peoples in California history

A book signing will follow the presentation
