Presented by Patti Dixon (Chair of the American Indian Studies Department at Palomar College) and Edward Castillo (retired Director of Native American Studies at Sonoma State University).

Historians utilize various tools to unravel the complexities of humankind’s choices and to determine the legacy the future will hold about that unraveling.  Who does the unraveling and why it is done can vary from generation to generation.

Speakers Patti Dixon, Chair of the American Indian Studies Department at Palomar College, and Edward Castillo, retired Director of Native American Studies at Sonoma State University, will discuss what Junipero Serra represents today and to whom.  Ms. Dixon is a member of the Pauma Band of Luiseño Indians and Mr. Castillo is Luiseño and Cahuilla.
