About this title


A significant contribution to a deeper understanding of the Spanish period in Arizona and Sonora, Mexico, this translation of Father Diego Miguel Bringas' 1796–97 report on missionary activities presents a rare first-hand account of Spanish attempts to direct cultural change among the Pima Indians.

About the Author:

Daniel S. Matson's career as a linguist and translator began with a bilingual upbringing on the United States and Mexican border at Douglas, Arizona. Between 1940 and 1944 he worked among the Tohono O'odham Indians, becoming fluent in their tongue and immersing himself in their culture. He studied at the University of Arizona (B.A). and San Luis Rey College in California (M.A. in social studies). In 1950, Matson joined the Anthropology faculty at the University of Arizona. With Albert Schroeder, Matson translated and edited the 1590-91 journal of Gaspar Castaño de Sosa, published as A Colony on the Move.

Bernard L. Fontana, well-known specialist in the history of the Piman Indians and the missions of Pimería Alta, received his Ph.D. in cultural anthropology from the University of Arizona. An ethnologist at the Arizona State Museum and president of the Southwestern Mission Research Center, he has been editor of Ethnohistory and The Kiva, and has edited and coauthored numerous articles and books.
