S01E01 Challenging Colonialism in California is produced by
Martin Rizzo-Martinez, Historían, & Daniel Stonebloom, a Public
School Administrator. We want to be both accountable &
transparent about what our role is and what it is not. It is
not our intention to further colonize the narrative, or to
misrepresent stories that aren’t our own. Our own perspectives
are unimportant, but we’d like to hear yours: Please leave your feedback, suggestions, reviews, ideas for future episodes, and
more at the episode page, and please share and promote the
podcast in your networks.
Interviews were recorded by
Martin Rizzo Martinez & Alexii Sigona.
Music in this episode was created by
Bernard Gordillo & Hilson Parker.
The title of today’s episode comes from the work of
Grzegorz Welizarowicz, who uses the term
“instruments of colonization” in his piece "California
Mission Bells: Listening Against the 'Fantasy Heritage'"
published in 2016 in Beyond Philology

An article by Renya K. Ramirez & Valentin Lopez

Contesting Mission Bells, El Camino Real, and
California Governor Newsom" appears here:
