Lecture: Isidora Filomena - An Indigenous Story

07/27/2017 7:00pm

Isidora Filomena, the baptized name of a Wintun woman married to Chief Solano, witnessed dramatic changes with the Spanish and European colonization of California. Kidnapped from her home village in Yolo County, she lived with the Suisun people, was relocated to Mission San Francisco Solano, and spent her last years at Lachryma Montis with General Vallejo and his family.

The story of Isidora Filomena will be hosted by the Sonoma State Historic Park and Sonoma Petaluma Parks, Inc. on Thursday, July 27, from 7:00pm – 8:30pm in the Mission San Francisco Solano chapel. Presenting Isidora’s history is April Farnham, a historian and educator with expertise in California and Native American history. Ms. Farnham operates a history education business, California Treks in Time, which serves Kindergarten – 8th grade classrooms.

Tickets will be sold at the door. Admission is $10 for the General Public, $5 for SPParks members. Mission San Francisco Solano is located at 114 East Spain Street in Sonoma.
