This article points to a great resource that could serve as the basis for any number of educational activities, allowing students to "locate primary sources, including images, objects, media, and texts. Annotations by scholars contextualize sources." The annotations are brief and to the point, and I'm sure there's a lot of room to dig deeper (so I would use these as starting points and ask students to do more research). What, for example, would we say in 2021 about the Misión San Lorenzo de Picuris where "priests not only supervised the native peoples during worship, but also taught them to work and live according to Spanish customs" and which was "built with indigenous labor in the late-eighteenth century"?
