A missionary, explorer, astronomer and mapmaker, Father Kino surmounted numerous challenges as he journeyed through Mexico, Arizona and California. In recognition of the 50th anniversary of the discovery of Padre Kino’s mortal remains, we will show three films in the 1885 schoolhouse. (The schoolhouse is not – yet – air conditioned).
