MH Library 3pm - Conversations with Elias Castillo
author and Robin Shepherd journalist & filmaker.

A Cross of Thorns describes the Mission Period when California*s coastal Indians paid a high price for their interaction with the church. St. Junipero Serra, who arrived in 1769, created a harsh and unforgiving regimen that would ultimately claim the lives of 62,000 California Coastal Indians, and devastate their civilization, including the total extinction of a number of small tribes.
