Best known for his work among native peoples in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, Jesuit missionary Father Kino was a cartographer, explorer, geographer, and scientist. With 24 missions throughout Southern Arizona and Northern Mexico to his credit, including San Xavier del Bac near Tucson, he made numerous trips among native villages. He ventured as far north as the Gila River and the Estrella Mountains. He is held in high honor to this day by the O’odham people, many of whom make a pilgrimage each year to Magdalena de Kino, site of his burial. Historical geographer and author Dr. Barbara Jaquay will highlight Kino’s expeditions and contributions in the Pimeria Alta.
