To Destroy in Whole or in Part
A presentation by Jack Norton
It can be said the some of the earliest work of collecting historical information and publishing evidence of the genocide that was committed against California’s Native Peoples was done by Professor Emeritus Jack Norton in this book Genocide in Northwestern California: When Our Worlds Cried. He has spent a great deal of his career educating the public about this little know piece of our state’s history.
