In this episode, I speak with Greg Bernal-Mendoza Smestad, a direct descendant of the families who settled Alta California over 200 years ago. Greg talks to us about their journey, the character of those people who risked their lives to come to come north, and the legacy they passed on.
How did native people live at the Spanish missions in Alta California? What were their jobs? What did they eat? A brief look at Indian life in the California missions.
A conversation with writer Maggie Espinosa, who walked the California mission trail from San Diego to Sonoma.
