Missions: Summary and Evaluation

If I had to name this unit I might choose this:

Romance & Repulsion

That’s because it is historically romantic to think about the creation of the mission system.

About Serra’s walk.

About having the missions still here.

I love the story.

But I don’t love the purpose – civilize and spiritualize the Native Americans.

Even though I am a Christian, I don’t believe in making everyone the same.
