It’s fairly important that our students learn about the California Missions — the series of churches the Spaniards set up to convert and abuse Native Americans here. I use lessons about the Missions to help students think about how they would have reacted if they were Native Americans living in California at the time, and to reflect on instances when they and their families had been victims of injustice and how they responded.

I have lots of related accessible links on my website under California, and have just added another one — California Mission Panoramas. It has panoramic images of many of the surviving missions.

While you’re at it, you might be also be interested in The Best Websites To Learn About California.

Thanks to Edtech Gold Rush for the info on the panoramas.
