18th-Century San Antonio Spanish Colonial Mission Complexes: An Evolution, American Revolution, and Tejano Ranchos1 (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Sergio A. Iruegas.

Recent historical archaeology studies have provided new perspectives of indigenous interaction with Spanish Colonial Missions in the United States. By 1718, Texas colonists were the product of Spanish and native intermarriage for over 200 years before their arrival. Few studies have considered the multicultural aspects’ effect to the historic landscape and archaeological record. An emic perspective of how 18th-Century Tejano Ranchos evolved from the Spanish Mission complex has yet to be...

The Catechism of Time Discipline in the Franciscan Missions of La Florida (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Charles Cobb. Gifford Waters.

Franciscan missions in La Florida have been characterized as struggling between an unresolved duality between their Christian obligations and their mandated support functions for the larger colony. We suggest that there was a dialectical symmetry between these demands. Catholicism introduced a new set of rhythms into the daily life of Indigenous communities centered on prayer, study, the sacraments, feast days, and other ongoing religious observances. This periodization of time and behavior...


Catholic Parishes and Colonization: A Frontier Parish in Grand Bay, Dominica (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Steve Lenik.

The Catholic parishes that were established as units of ecclesiastical jurisdiction are among the range of institutions, including chartered companies, missions, and military installations, deployed by nation-states in the Americas to exert control over the daily lives of African, European, and indigenous peoples. As administrative units in the colonization of newly acquired territories in the Caribbean islands, parishes introduced administrative boundaries and religious personnel who intended...


Confronting the Challenge of Analyzing Museum Collections with Limited Archival Data in Southern Brazil (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Evelyn R. Nimmo.

One of the major challenges in working with museum collections of excavated material is the paucity of information available about the original excavation. What value do these collections have without any context? This paper examines a case study of an archaeological collection from one of the first Spanish Jesuit missions founded in Southern Brazil, housed at the Paranaense Museum, Curitiba, Brazil. The mission, Santo Inacio Mini (1610 – 1631), was the largest in the province and was integral...

Engendered Death: A Comprehensive Analysis of Identity in the Mission System of 17th Century Spanish Florida (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Katherine L Brewer.

Personal identity, while always fluid, was especially so in the borderlands that made up seventeenth-century Spanish Florida due to the collision of many different cultures within the colonial system. The Spanish missions set up by the Franciscans who travelled to the frontier of Spanish territory in Florida served as places wherein the Apalachee, the Guale, and the Timucua could negotiate issues of identity such as gender, social status, and age. Analysis of cemetery populations excavated from...

The Formation of Mission Indian Communities in South Central California: An Ethnohistorical Case Study (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only John Johnson.

The Mission Period in Spanish-Mexican California resulted in the breakdown of original independent native polities. Depopulation from introduced European diseases coupled with intermarriage between people from different tribal groups at the missions led to the disappearance of linguistic differences and the formation of new community identities named after the different missions. Alongside these processes of coalescence and ethnogenesis, political and traditional ceremonial activities...

Hunters, Soldiers, and Holy Men: Exploring the Gendered Politics of Mission Landscapes in Alta California (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Emily Dylla.

Space was paramount to Spanish missionary work in 18th and 19th century Alta California. This mission system was designed to irreparably reshape the Indigenous conceptual universe into that of a Christo-European worldview, to transform Native peoples into gente de razón. In addition, missions were the setting against which ecclesiastical and military colonists were in constant contact, and missionaries also used space as a moralizing tool, in an attempt to reform the lax morals of soldiers...


Institutions of the Reformation, Institutions of Reform: Archaeology, Protestantism, and Modernity in the South Pacific (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only James Flexner.

When scholars speak of "the Modern World", they often refer to capitalism, nation states, and colonialism. It is often assumed that the transition to modernity correlates with increased secularism, though recent scholarship challenges this idea, specifically linking certain concepts about modern subjectivity to the philosophy of the Protestant Reformation. Tracing the impact of the Reformation across time and space is crucial to understanding modernity, especially in situations where some of the...

Negotiating And Creating Tension And Change Through Religion, Mortuary Practices, and Burial Sites Within African-Descent And Moravian Communities In The Caribbean (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Helen C. Blouet.

Historical archaeologies of the African diaspora in the Caribbean have recently expanded on analyses of relationships between religion, mortuary practices, burial sites, and varied environmental, social, economic, and cultural contexts. In addition, studies currently investigate the politics of death and burial, including who controlled mortuary spaces, at what times, by which means, and for what purposes. Finally, research collaborations analyze community formation and activity through the lens...


Outside of the Reach of the Mission Bell: Tongva Ritual Practice on San Clemente Island (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Elisabeth A. Rareshide.

The Mission Period in Alta California (AD 1769-1834) radically changed the lives of indigenous people such as the Tongva. Many Tongva people joined the Spanish missions, but some practiced rituals connected to the Chinigchinich religion on San Clemente Island. Patterns of consumption of native and foreign material culture may reveal new layers of meaning in persistent ritual practices. With a variety of ritual features, the Lemon Tank artifact collection from San Clemente Island provides a rich...


Precursors of Missionization: Early European Contact on the Georgia Coast, 1514-1587 (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only John Worth.

Beginning not long after the Spanish discovery of the Florida peninsula in 1513, indigenous groups along the Georgia coast were increasingly subject to sporadic maritime visits by Spanish and later French ships. By the time Georgia’s coastal chiefdoms were assimilated into the expanding Franciscan mission system of Spanish Florida after 1587, they had already experienced more than seven decades of occasional interaction with European slavers, colonists, soldiers, missionaries, traders, and...

DOCUMENT Citation Only Susan R Snow. Alexis Artuz. Laura Burghardt.

This paper will discuss the results of the archaeological investigations that were conducted as part of the establishment of a platted reburial area at Mission San Juan. The discovery of human remains during the stabilization and restoration of the Mission San Juan church led to a creative partnership between the Archdiocese of San Antonio and the National Park Service to provide a respectful reburial area that complied with the Texas Health and Safety Code, and did not compromise the integrity...

Spanish Mission Archaeology in the Southeast. 1974-2014 A.D. (After Dave) (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kathleen Deagan-Harris.

The archaeological study of Spanish missions among the American Indians has been underway in the Southeastern and Western regions of the United States for more than 70 years. This paper considers the directions and contributions of that body of work in the Southeast, with particular attention to the interdisciplinary impacts of the Santa Catalina Mission program, carried out by Dave Thomas between 1974 and today on St. Catherine's Island, Georgia. SAA 2015 abstracts made available in tDAR...


A Study of Indigenous Daily Life Integrating Geophysical and Archaeological Methods at the San Antonio Missions (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Melissa A Agnew.

The San Antonio Missions were established along the San Antonio River in the 18th century by the Spanish in order to convert the native populations to Christianity and to buffer the French settlements to the east. These colonial institutes brought Spanish Catholic priests and indigenous groups together under one roof, merging cultural practices and beliefs. The missions are now a UNESCO World Heritage site and a vital part of San Antonio’s history and tourism industry. This paper presents a...
