    History of California Vol 1, Ch 1, Pt 1

    In this episode we start Chapter 1, staying firmly within the 1500s. Bancroft summarizes the imperial politics of the pre-Mexico conquistadors and offers a play-by-play account of the missions and establishments that finally lead to the first European encounter encounters with today’s California.

    Eusebio Kino

    Though just a wee bit of time in California, this man quite literally paved the way for the mission system by developing routes, maps, and relationships among native groups throughout the Pimería and modern Southwestern US.

    Early European Explorers

    Early European Explorers

    In this episode we’ll read from the wiki pages of the first European explorers, and dare I say... PIRATES?!...of California

    That’s right, ye ol scalliwags. We are walking the plank right into some of the first written accounts of California.

    But more prescient in this episode compared to those perhaps in the future is the strong ties between California History and World History.

    The three explorers we cover today, have literally sailed the world, so we’ll get a good background on who they were, where they came from, and how they influenced cultures in many different regions and realms.

    Without further ado, here are the stories of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, el Draco himself—Sir Francis Drake, and Sebastian Vizcaino.

    🚨Disclaimer🚨

    🚨Disclaimer🚨

    Quick disclaimer and acknowledgment of racial bias in the story of early California, the curator’s background, and therefore this podcast. It feels right to address this before we jump into some heavy topics of displacement, violence, and genocide.
