Missions, Missionaries and Native Americans

October 15, 2019 @ 7:15 pm EDT

Pecos Trail Café
2239 Old Pecos Trail
Santa Fe, NM 87505 United States

AIA Society: Santa Fe

Lecturer: Mariah Wade

The insertion of a mission into the lived landscape of a Native American population and the mission’s layout reflected an assessment of how the mission could function and achieve its aims among that population. Hunting and gathering populations required different layouts than agriculturists, and missionaries made decisions that often reflected their missionary works in Iberia and elsewhere, and the ignorance of Native Americans socio-cultural and ritual lives. Native American populations were not consulted. This talk will discuss the differences between missions established for hunting and gathering populations and for agriculturists and how those differences affected missionaries and Native Americans.
