Thanks for the link.
The tribe in the south were the Pericú. Just a spelling fix.
The Franciscans ran the missions in Baja for only 5 years, to 1773. The Dominicans assumed operation of the existing missions and established 9 more while the Franciscans were operating in Alta California. The Dominicans final mission was founded in 1834 and left the peninsula in 1855. I didn't see them mentioned. Perhaps I missed it in my quick read?
The Dominicans were operating in Baja longer than the Jesuits.
Hope I can keep the history accurate, and why I wrote my 2016 book.
Thank you.

Edit: The Jesuit & Franciscan only content was in the El Camino Real link in the article.

>>> Between 1683 and 1834, Jesuit and Franciscan missionaries established a series of religious outposts from today's Baja California and Baja California Sur (Lower California South) into present-day California. <<<

Artes de Mexico Magazine

Had this big, long scholarly article about the history and mission of the Jesuits in Mexico: they were involved in the intellectual and scientific blooming of the Renaissance, they encouraged Europeans to have relations with the indigenous peoples, creating the Mestizos, a new Catholic population.

Papal politics in Italy caused their expulsion and return to Italy, but essentially, they created the shape and form of Mexico today.

I gave my copy of this article to a Mexican friend. I have tried to bring up a link on the Artes de Mexico website, without success.
