culturefind Repost from @chhhaaarrrlleess
Recently, #PopeFrancis has declared that he will #canonize #JuniperoSerra, the founder of the #CaliforniaMission system. Serra has a divisive #legacy, as he is said to have helped #build the #foundation for modern California through his missions, however, in doing so he caused grave harm to the #NativeAmerican population. Junipero Serra looked down on #Natives and viewed them as #savages who would benefit from being introduced to the “civilized” European way of life and conversion to #Catholicism. As a result, Native tribes were #forced to #convert and live in the missions Serra founded; living in close quarters, working long hours, and being removed from their Native #culture. In these missions, Natives had a life expectancy of only ten years, as the hard lives they were forced into wore them down made them highly susceptible to #disease brought from #Europe. If there were Native #dissenters, who wished to retain their traditional culture and way of life, they were punished with horrible acts of physical violence, which often ended in their death. During his #colonization of #California, Serra killed about 100,000 Natives through disease, coercion into harsh living conditions, and violence, decimating their population and rooting out generations of sacred culture. #nativelivesmatter #manipulation #genocide #gentrification #racialoppression #racialinjustice #blackandbrownlivesmatter #socialissues

  •   r0sey_posey An online petition, launched by Carac on the liberal website MoveOn.org, appealing to Pope Francis not to canonize Serra, has drawn more than 3,100 signatures. "It is imperative he is enlightened to understand that Father Serra was responsible for the deception, exploitation, oppression, enslavement and genocide of thousands of indigenous Californians, ultimately resulting in the largest ethnic cleansing in North America," the petition states.

    A Jesuit who is spiritually close to Saint Francis of Assisi, founder of the Franciscan order, the pope announced in mid-January, en route to the Philippines, his intention to canonize Serra as "the great evangelizer" of the American west coast.

    Pope Francis will visit Washington, Philadelphia and New York, but not California, on his September 22-27 American tour.

    Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez hailed the pope's intentions, calling it a "gift to California and the Americas." "It's wonderful to think that this new saint once walked the road that is now the Hollywood Freeway," said Gomez in a statement, referring to one of the most traffic-clogged highways in the United States.

    He acknowledged that canonization would revive bad memories of Indian suffering in missionary and colonial times, but recalled an apology that Pope John Paul II extended to native Americans in 1992 1w
  •   r0sey_posey @chhhaaarrrlleess so an apology from the Pope is supposed to make all ok?! Bullshit. 1w
  •   chhhaaarrrlleess @r0sey_posey lol yes, apparently genocide, gentrification, slavery, land theft, cultural degradation/extermination, rewriting of history and so much more is covered under an apology from the pope... ohh sweet baby jesus. 1w
  •   r0sey_posey I found the link for the petition. It's on my IG profile. Share with all! We need to stop this!!! 1w

  •   r0sey_posey Wow. Can I repost? 1w
  •   chhhaaarrrlleess @r0sey_posey you can take whatever you want from my IG 1w
  •   chhhaaarrrlleess @thewizard500 yup, and they using all of us for the raping 1w
  •   r0sey_posey Ugh, his name was bugging me because it sounded so dang familiar. I just remembered I read about him when I was doing my research about Pame Natives in Mexico (whom I strongly believe are my Native Ancestors). Anyway, I came across Serra's name. Apparently he is the one credited with translating the cathecism into the Pame Language. Now I wonder what sort of atrocities he might have done to them as well.. 1w
  •   chhhaaarrrlleess @r0sey_posey they treated natives, blacks like property... worth less than a homeless dog and just as expendable. and this attitude still continues... 1w
