Elias Castillo discusses "A Cross of Thorns: The Enslavement of California's Indians by the Spanish Missions" 3-19-15
7 pm Thursday, March 19, 2015
Elias Castillo discusses his new book. A Cross of Thorns delivers a damning indictment of the enslavement of California's Indians by the Spanish Missions. It is especially timely in light of the fact that the Pope has said he plans to declare Father Junipero Serra a saint. Serra was the key founder of California's Spanish missions. Serra has been sharply criticized by Native Americans for his role in their abuse and genocidal treatment.
The savage mistreatment of California's Indian population by Spanish missionaries from 1769 - 1821 is a chapter of California's history that has been largely covered up. It has been deliberately falsified by the state of California. It is at last exposed to public scrutiny in this new book, which challenges the mythologized history and presents the facts of the cruel reality of mission life where the people were whipped and kept from returning to their Native land.
The author is a three-time Pulitizer Prize nominee and winner of thirteen journalism awards. Born in Mexicali, Baja California, he is a former reporter for the San Jose Mercury News and the Associated Press.
