Featuring Dr. Damien Bacich
Friday, November 20
California has a rich history that spans hundreds of years of human settlements. Many people only spend a brief period of time learning about the Rancho period in California history. What can we learn about the people who lived, worked, thrived on California's hundreds of Ranchos? How is their legacy still with us today?
Dr. Damien Bacich is a professor of History at SJSU as well as a translator and researcher of early California. He created the California Frontier Project to share information and resources about California’s early history and natural environment.
