I believe that the most important part of California’s history is the Native Californians crossing the land bridge that was connecting Asia to Alaska. This is important because if the Native Californians didn’t cross the land bridge, California’s history would be a much different story. Some explorers would not have survived with- out the Native Californians. The Native Californians wouldn’t be at the missions to work there. This would have changed history.
Native Americas helped out the explorers by giving them food. Cermeño is an explorer whose ship wrecked, and he and his crew piled on a small ship and sailed safely to shore. They met the Native Californians who gave them acorn so Cermeño did not starve to death on his journey back to New Spain.
The Native Californians also helped the missions. Native Californians were very important people to the missions even though they were the slaves. Slaves were important to the missions because they kept the missions clean, running, and they even built the missions. If the Native Californians didn’t cross the land bridge the Native Californians wouldn’t be the slave workers so the Spanish would have to do the work and that would change history for sure.
As everyone can see, if the Native Californians didn’t cross the land bridge there would be a major change in history. Two of the main changes would be Cermeño starving to death at Drake’s Bay, and the Spanish wouldn’t have Native Californians slaves in the missions. That is why I think the Native Californians crossing the land bridge is the most important idea in California’s history.
