Calafia sailed to Constantinople to join the other great captions of the world in the siege against the Turks<br />She and the Californians became Christians <br />She married one of the Esplandian’s trusted lieutenants<br />Queen Califia was known to be “very large in person, the most beautiful of them all..”<br />Queen Calafia’s Island<br />
  3. 3. Entered history as a ‘myth’<br />Among Esplandians allies at the siege were the Californians, a race of black Amazons under the command of Queen Caladfia<br />California was known to be ‘an island on the right hand of the Indies… very close to the side of the Terrestrial Paradise”<br />Californians brought griffins into battle and use golden weapon's to fight<br />Queen Calafia’s Island<br />
  4. 4. California was known to be an island on the land<br />The bird life on the land became distinct, especially in the mountain forest that dominated the region<br />The birds were lighter, paler, grayer than their counterparts in the interior of the continent<br />The blue-fronted California Jay became a worthy symbol of the state to come<br />Many plants and animals remained flourishing in <br />Queen Calafia’s Island<br />
  5. 5. “The Gold Rush was an epic of personal labor in which men of every social background sought their fortunes through the world of their hands”<br />Work was kept for those who worked hard and long with their hands<br />Ex: A carpenter could make $14 a day in 1849, an unskilled laborer could make $8 a day, and a skilled washerwoman could charge $20 for a load of laundry<br />Making It Happen<br />
  6. 6. The Great Depression hit California late<br />The economy was diversified into agriculture, industrial, entertainment, tourist, and service sectors <br />It started in the 1930s <br />Resulted in social cultural workforce, labor movement in San Francisco Bay area, labor resistant oligarcy, and radical traditions headed back to the nineteenth century<br />Making It Happen<br />
  7. 7. Family farmers developed around 1870s (very popular in northern California)<br />“Wheat king Huge James Glenn, a dentist from Missouri, was by 1880 producing more than half a million bushels of wheat per year on fifty-thousand acres in Colusa County”<br />Because of the accelerated development of railroad cars gave California the title of the ‘agricultural state’<br />Making It Happen<br />
  8. 8. California was founded on racial distinction and repression<br />“The disenfranchisement of blacks and Asians, the aggression against Mexican land titles, the lynch law in the mines”<br />“White California” movement was in the early twentieth century<br />Ethnic prejudice were considered: Mexican, African, Japanese Americans, and Okies<br />Though they were “white” they were still radicalized<br />Ecumenopolis<br />
  9. 9. Ward Connerly, a Sacramento Businessman, believed that: “personhood transcended race, ethnicity, gender, class, or any combination thereof” <br />He fought that each individual was equal before law<br />He was very disturbed when he found out that the affirmative action programs were keeping Asian students with a 4.0 from top UC schools while admitting African Americans or Latinos with a 3.0 or lower<br />Ecumenopolis<br />
  10. 10. The sociogenetic heritage of California would be ethnic diversity<br />Began during the Native American era<br />There was seventy to eighty language groups and multiple tribes<br />“During the Gold Rush, diversity exfoliated into brilliant hues as nearly every portion of the planent sent its people to California-as, J.S. Holliday said, “the world rushed in”<br />Ecumenopolis<br />
