Sept. 21- Kumeyaay Resistance and “Abusive” Art

Kumeyaay Resistance and “Abusive” Art at Mission San Diego and the San Diego Presidio, By Richard Carrico Thurs., Sept. 21 at 7 pm, at P.L. United Methodist Church, 1984 Sunset Cliffs Blvd., O.B.— Do you ever wonder how the local Kumeyaay Indians might have resisted Spanish colonialization besides sacking Mission San Diego in 1775? Is there any chance that they used art forms to show their disdain for the Spaniards right beneath (and above) the eyes of the colonists? In this highly informative and engaging talk, local historian and anthropologist Richard L. Carrico will delve into the “dark art” that the Kumeyaay used to continue their ancient artistic practices and their use of symbology.
