View 2020 Free Public Talks

After more than 150 years, finally historians—and perhaps Californians—are facing up to the horrifying truth that the Indians of California were subjected to a vicious and genocidal campaign of extermination from the beginning of U.S. control in 1846 until after the Civil War.

Explore complicated stories of cultural, religious, and political conflict and assimilation, with both synthetic absorption and stubborn refusals, not reducible only to the slave-based rancheria and mission economy.
