"Disrobing Junipero Serra- Saint or Monster?"
Public welcome to discussion on Sainthood of Junipero Serra
And  the real history of California missions
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., On Saturday May 30, 2015, In opposition of the Pope's plans to grant Serra sainthood and the Catholic church's continued failure to address the real story of the California missions, the Barbareno Chumash Tribal Council “'iyalmuwič” and The American Indian Movement of Southern California, have brought together some of the Native community's most notable academics and leaders to lead discussions in two thought provoking panels. The Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara is hosting this as a free event at 1535 Santa Barbara St. Santa Barbara, CA. 93101  
The First panel begins at 9:30 a.m., with the topic of the International Ramifications of Canonization.  The sainthood of Junipero Serra will have global repercussions. This issue affects the entire Western Hemisphere.  This panel will expose the iconic California Mission systems, which has long been held by the Catholic church as a golden era- a unique storyline that created a myth of it's own. Subjects to include; The Doctrine of Discovery, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Human rights, religious, spiritual, environmental, economic and social justices issues of today. Panelists include:

  • Facilitator- Marcus Lopez, Sr. Co-Chair of the Barbareno Chumash Tribal Council, “'iyalmuwič”;
  • Elias Castillo, author, A Cross of Thorns, The Enslavement of California’s Indians by the Spanish Missions';

Panel two begins at 1:00 p.m. with the topic of Catholic and Christians against canonization. The issue of Junipero Serra's impending sainthood, should not be a "Native Vs. Catholic" issue. This has been an emotional issue of major proportions. Many people from the Christian and Catholic faith have been reaching out, and organizing against Pope Francis' decision for Junipero Serra's sainthood.  Subjects will include: How does one become a saint? Did Serra meet those requirements? How is the Catholic Church justifying the Junipero Sainthood? What is and what is not implied by Sainthood? How does this involve historical trauma and self - determination?

Santa Barbara, Calif., op zaterdag 30 mei 2015, in oppositie tegen de plannen van de paus om Serra heilig te verklaren, en het voortdurende falen van de katholieke kerk om de ware geschiedenis van de missies in California naar buiten te brengen heeft het Barbareno Chumash Tribal Council“'iyalmuwič” en het American Indian Movement van Zuid California, enkele opmerkelijke academici en leiders uit de Native gemeenschappen bijeengebracht om de discussies in twee panels te leiden.
De Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara is gastheer van dit gratis evenement dat zal doorgaan 1535 Santa Barbara St. Santa Barbara, CA. 93101  

He eerste panel begint om 9.30u, met het thema van de internationale vertakkingen van heiligverklaring. De heiligheid van Junipero Serra zal wereldwijde gevolgen hebben. Deze kwestie treft het hele westelijke halfrond. Dit panel zal het iconische Californische missiesysteem belichten, dat al zo lang door de katholieke kerk als het gouden tijdperk- een unieke verhaallijn die een mythe van zichzelf gecreëerd heeft- beschouwd wordt.

De Doctrine van de Ontdekking , VN Verklaring over de rechten van inheemse volken, mensenrechten, religieuze, spirituele, milieu, economische en sociale rechtvaardigheid vandaag worden besproken.

Paneelleden zijn:
  • Facilitator- Marcus Lopez, Sr. Co-Chair of the Barbareno Chumash Tribal Council, “'iyalmuwič”;
  • Elias Castillo, author, A Cross of Thorns, The Enslavement of California’s Indians by the Spanish Missions';
  • -Valentin Lopez, Chairman, the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band of Costanoan/Ohlone Indians; 

  • Tia Oros Peters-Zuni, Executive Director of the 7th Generation Fund for Indigenous Development;
Deana Dartt-Newton - Chumash, doctor of Anthropology; 

  • Roberta Cordero - Chumash Elder, Coastal Band of the Chumash Nation; 

  • Shannon Rivers, Akimel O'otham, former co-chair of the Global Indigenous Peoples -Caucus United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues; 

  • Kanyon Sayers-Roods, Costanoan Ohlone, Chumash, Director of CIR- Indian Canyon;
Fuifuilupe Niumeitolu, Tongan, PhD Candidate, Dept. of Ethnic Studies, University of California, Berkeley.

Panel 2 begint om 13 uur, met het thema van katholieken en christenen tegen de heiligverklaring.
De kwestie van Junipero Serra’s nakende heiligheid mag geen ‘Native tegen katholieken’ worden.
Dit is een emotionele kwestie van grote proporties.
Veel katholieken en christelijke gelovigen ondersteunen en organiseren zich tegen de beslissing van de paus om Junipera Serra heilig te verklaren.
Onderwerpen : Hoe wordt men heilig? Heeft Serra aan die eisen voldaan? Hoe rechtvaardigt de katholieke kerk de Heiligheid van Junipero? Waar komt het historische trauma en zelfbeschikking in deze heiligmaking?

Panelleden zijn:
  • Facilitator- Valentin Lopez, Chairman, the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band of Constantan/Ohlone Indians,
  • Georgiana Valoyce Sanchez- Chumash, O'odham Elder Retired Professor of American Indian Literature Cal-State Long Beach;
  • Donna Schindler, MD Cross-Cultural Psychiatry Historical Trauma Focus,
  • Mary Valdemar, Former Catholic Youth of the Year, LA Archdiocese, Co-Founder of CHICCCAA, Coalition Member, Indigenous DRUM,
  • Sasheen Littlefeather, Kiowa- Lifelong Native Activist and practicing Catholic;
Greg Cotten: Christian, Research Scientist, and human rights advocate.
