The Payómkawichum[]

The Payómkawichum, also known as the Luiseño, are an indigenous people of California who, at the time of the first contacts with the Spanish in the 16th century, inhabited the coastal area of southern California from what is now southern Los Angeles County to northern San Diego County. Today there are six federally recognized tribes, all with reservations, and an additional organised band not federally recognised. Payómkawichum is the endonym, meaning People of the West in the Luiseño language. However, after the establishment of of Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, meaning The Mission of Saint Louis King of France, the Payómkawichum began to be called San Luiseños, and later, just Luiseños by Spanish missionaries due to their proximity to this San Luis Rey mission.

Pablo Tac[]

Pablo Tac was a Payómkawichum Native American scholar who provided a rare contemporary Native American perspective on the institutions and early history of Alta California. He created the first writing system for Luiseño, and his writings were hugely valuable as a primary source for the Payómkawichum. He was also a Christian convert of the Payómkawichum.

Dawn of Man[]

"Blessings be upon you, scholarly Pablo Tac, preserver of the Payómkawichum culture. Born on the Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, you attended a Mission School where your academic skill was clear. Travelling to Barcelona and then Rome, you were enrolled in the College of the Propaganda, where you studied Latin, rhetoric, humanities, and philosophy. It was during this time that you wrote a number of works, including on the history of the Payómkawichum, your relationship with your mission, and the decline of your people. You also created the first writing system for the Luiseño language of the Payómkawichum, indexing a proud language for future generations. On your way to becoming a missionary yourself, you died at 19, leaving a career unfulfilled.

Scholarly Pablo Tac, your chance to write your own history is now. An indexer of your people, you now have the opportunity to lead your people, drawing on the history you wrote and your academic career to navigate the new and old worlds. Can you revive the language of your people, and change their fortunes? Will you build a civilization that can stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "May the Lord be with you. I am Pablo Tac, and I speak for my people, the Payómkawichum."

Defeat: "God is still with us, and I must weather this trial, as it is His will..."
