Toypurina was a revolutionary Native American woman of the Kizh nation who was a victim of California’s mission system, a system established by now canonized Saint Junipero Serra. Yet, Toypurina was not just a victim of that system of slavery, land theft, malnutrition, disease, and forced conversion to Catholicism. She also fought.

On October 25th, 1785 Toypurina rose up against California’s Catholic mission system and Spanish colonization in a revolt where she persuaded six other villages to join her rebellion against Mission San Gabriel Arcángel in the southern Californian area of contemporary Los Angeles. The revolt was defeated by Spanish soldiers. During her trial, Toypurina was given the choice between a death sentence or forced conversion to Christianity and banishment. She chose Christianity over being murdered and was sent into exile in Carmel where she died at age 39.

During her life, Toypurina’s enslaved Kizh nation declined from 5,000 to 1,500 people due mostly to malnutrition and disease. Totpurina, a true hero, was buried in San Juan Batista in an unmarked grave where she remains to this day. On September 23rd, 2015, Pope Francis canonized Junipero Cerra, the father of California’s mission system, as a saint. Working class and oppressed peoples reject the Pope’s canonization of Junipero Cerra and instead raise Toypurina as the true hero of California’s mission system.
