Come see the workings of the Indian slave trade along with Indian escape stories. Indian origin stories presented. One strange escape story is about the Garfias (San Pasqual) ranch in Pasadena, California. Another escape story tells of escape from Navajo servitude. A Tataviam (Fernandino) story teller from the first century B.C. tells an epic sea voyage from the seething cauldron of Mesoamerican violence to Santa Clarita, California by way of a white knuckle misadventure in Northern California. Then he takes you on a thrilling adventure of discovery in the magic desert of California where mountains move and rocks race on a race. All this preparatory to expanding the realm. Come see Death Valley generate the Shoshone and Comanche. Come see a great drought grip Southern California sending thousands on a 700 mile walk to Utah to establish the Utes. Revealed: Carefully laid plans to establish Los Angeles as a seaport for proposed Spanish colonies in Utah and how it opened the Great Basin to slaving. Come see how the Los Angeles Basin became the mother colony for many Indian tribes. Come see how a navigational error brought the Uto-Aztecans to Southern California instead of the Central Valley of Arizona. Come see who filled the vacancy left by the Anasazi collapse on the Colorado Plateau (not the Navajo). Come see why Native Americans did not have even one nasty germ to throw back at the European invaders.
