Is he about to apologize in their own language to the Native Americans for their (in this order) conversion, enslavement, and starving to death under Junipero Serra -- canonized today --and the other California missionaries during the 18th century?

A well-paid CNN journalist reports that before Pope Francis's remarks at
today's Celebratory Mass there was "a reading in the Native American
language."

Yup.

According to The Guardian, the actual language used was Chochenyo.

For the Wikiupedia treatment of it:
