ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the growth of Spanish missions in California. The missionaries taught the Indians to grow vegetables and fruits. By the 1820's, the California missions had tens of thousands of cattle and sheep. The Indians who moved to the missions were called Mission Indians. Indians were faced with ill-treatment and forced conversion to Christianity. As a result, on November 3, 1775, Indians from more than a dozen villages attacked the San Diego mission. Some of the attackers were Indians who had converted to the new religion.
