Ruben Mendoza gave a tour of the Carmel Mission and talked about Father Junipero Serra, a Spanish priest of the Franciscan Order who founded the first nine missions in Spanish California. The missions were primarily designed to bring the Catholic faith to the indigenous community, but some argue they were used to suppress the native culture.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2015 LCV Cities Tour” in Monterey, California, from November 5-12 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on Book TV on C-SPAN2. close
