This is an interesting dissertation on the Arima Mission by Maximilian Forte. Focusing on the history of the Arima Mission in the Island of Trinidad, ostensibly a mission for Indigenous people, this documentary features what is learned from the baptismal registers of the Mission of Santa Rosa de Arima–in conjunction with historical texts, government documents, and official memoranda and reports of the time.
