 San Miguel Native Sons
 recently dedicated a new historical marker at   Father Reginald Park in San Miguel.    It will be installed when they complete the base on which it will be placed.
The dedication team consisted of  Grand President, Erik M. Christeson from Jackson, Ca.; Grand 1st Vice President, Carey Pearce from Salinas, Ca.; Grand Trustee,  Steve McLean from Jackson, Ca.; Grand 2nd Vice President, James King from 
San Miguel, Ca; Past Grand President, Richard Hoffmann, San Miguel, Ca. (The word "Grand" in their title indicates a state office for Native Sons of the Golden West)  
The historical marker is for "The San Miguel Massacre" at the Mission in 1848

You will find more information about the Massacre in the History Project section below.                                                                    
Pictured here are members of the dedication team preparing the plaque for display

This photo shows the Native Sons who were part of the dedication team,  the plaque and the 4 descendants of Josefa Piu-uina Olivera, the Salinan Indian woman who was also killed in the massacre.
The descendants traveled from Kern County to attend   the ceremony.
