Example text

At the missions, the plan was to transform indigenous peoples into Spanishspeaking, Roman Catholic, and tax-paying loyal subjects of the Spanish Crown. The man who orchestrated this action was José de Gálvez. In the wake of the military setbacks, King Carlos III acted to reinvigorate his moribund colonial empire, where the statement “Yo obedezco pero no cumplo” (I obey but I do not comply) had been the mantra for a century (Weber 1992). The result of this was a corruption-filled and inefficient mercantile system.

Jeanne Scott, manager of the Albinger Archaeological Museum. Dolores Schiffert and the late Harry Francisco provided ceramics from Mission San Juan Capistrano that yielded the first evidence of locally made lead-glazed ceramics in Alta California. Glenn Farris and Larry Felton of the California Department of Parks and Recreation provided materials from Old Town San Diego. Jack Williams shared his discoveries from the Presidio of San Diego, and Ronald V. May of Legacy 106, Inc. provided ceramics from Fort Guijarros.

A hallmark of this outward view was the creation of societal and ecological “New Europes” (Crosby 1986, 146–149). By importing animals, plants, technologies, and other material aspects of the Old World, the colonists transformed their new home environment into a cultural and natural facsimile of their idealized cosmopolitan homeland (Crosby 1986, 172). While this transformation was most successful in temperate areas, which were climatically more similar to Europe, the transformation of the tropical environment was successful enough to attract permanent settlers (Crosby 1986, 6, 134, 172–194).
