Most Californians are unaware that during the second half of the 19th century their state sponsored and funded a campaign to exterminate the Indigenous population — a mass atrocity known in contemporary international law as genocide. This course will explore what happened in California between 1846 and 1900 and connect California’s story with the larger narrative of conquest in the United States.
Writer Robert Aquinas McNally is the author of The Modoc War: A Story of Genocide at the Dawn of America’s Gilded Age, which won a Commonwealth Club gold medal. His writing has appeared in California History, Indian Country Today, and Wild West.
