ABSTRACT
The friars taught the Indians about the Christian faith. Indians who converted came to live in the mission and learned different types of work. Women spun cotton and wool to weave cloth. Some made soap and candles from animal fat. A typical day in the mission began early in the morning. The children took their places in the classrooms. Some children studied the Spanish language and the Catholic religion. Each mission had a band, with flutes, drums, and other musical instruments.
